I still have no intentions of racing, though. There is a 10K in Glenbeigh on Saturday, featuring a stunningly scenic route (in other words, that hill is massive). I'd love to do it. But I won't. I won't even attempt it as an easy or tempo run because I know I cannot trust myself; chances are I would get into racing mode the second I pin the number to my chest.
There are a few more local races in August, and depending on how I feel I might indeed take part in one of them, but right now I think my next race will be the Dingle Ultra. Then again, a short race shortly beforehand might be beneficial; racing a 10K in Tralee 2 weeks before Bangor worked a treat. I'll wait and see.
I haven't got anything else to write about, so I might as well post a youtube video. That stuff just does not get old. Believe it or not, there is actually a running connection that is relevant to me in all that, but I doubt anyone would be able to guess it.
