The problem with Marathons is the training. What's the point of running if there is nothing to chase? I solved this problem by run-exploring which turned out to be a great way to check out the areas around our new place. Surprisingly, you can run a long way without overlapping. I did the best I could to try new places every run and after 322km worth of exploring I was quite ready for the International Okanagan Half Marathon. Unfortunately, race day wasn't ideal, filled with some bad cramping and lack of energy. With all that, a time of 1:53 was respectable and quite a bit better than my attempt last year in Siem Reap.
