Marathon #4 in 6 days!

Sunday, February 09, 2014

I can't believe that this is really going ot happen! I am excited and nervous at the same time :) The only thing holding me back is the extra weight that I have gained, but I am determined to do it anyway. The last marathon that I ran I weighed about 25 pounds lighter than I am now, and that is a big difference. I am not trying to beat my best time of 5:15, but rather, I am trying to finish in under 6:00. The time limit for the marathon is 6 hours, so I must beat that time! In order to recive a finisher t-shirt and medal I must come in BEFORE the 6 hour time limit :) So here goes....and I plan on sticking with my training afterward. I want to run at least one marathon a year. Happy Running sparkPeople!

Todays training run:

12.55 miles
2 hours 36 minutes

    You have done it before, and you will do it again. Setting realistic goals will keep you motivated.

    Running is a great weight reduction program. 25 lbs will make a difference, but given your run today, I expect you will do quite well.

    Good luck.
