☼This marathon training has really bumped my mileage up for the month of August. It's my highest yet at 175 3/4. I should just go run a quarter mile around the block to bump that up to 176 but I'm tired. We'll see what September brings with my very first marathon just 3 weeks away. So far I'm not feeling any anxiety or nervousness about it but just excited to finally get to say I'm a marathoner. BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON MARATHON-SEPTEMBER 22ND, It' coming!!
☼Tomorrow on the schedule is my longest run of 20 miles. I'll be running the Bear Lake Half Marathon in the hills and so will be planning a 7 mile run before the race starts. Having races to run has definitely helped me feel like my long runs aren't so challenging to get done.
☼I guess I'm serious about continuing this running journey. I've already signed up for 2 races in 2013. I'm sure there will be more to follow. I foresee some ultra's down the road as well. They are pretty fun. (Did I just really say that?)
