Before race day, when people asked me how fast I hoped to finish my third marathon, I’d tell them, “well I’d love to be around 4:30 but I’ll take anything under my previous PR of 4:54:55.”
Wait how did I get here? Race day is less than one week away! I’m in taper. Like, how did this happen?!
I haven’t shared my story this training cycle yet. So yes, it’s a bit overdue. And with just under a month to go before the Cleveland Marathon (insert squeal), it’s something I want people to know about.
20 miles. It sounds almost as daunting as 26.2, am I right? The training plan I’m using this time around calls for two 20 mile runs and a 22 mile run and I had my first 20 today. Will you donate $20 to Bright Pink for the 20 miles I ran today?
Screw luck; get to work and MAKE your dreams happen. ☘️ I’m at the halfway point in my training. And I feel not just amazing but SO. FRICKEN. STRONG. 💪
The one thing I can always count on to make things better at the end of the day is some good tunes so I’ve put together my top 5 favorite songs that I’ve been cranking up on the runs that fall at the end of the hardest days.
The last two marathons I’ve run, I’ve kept both the same good and the same horrible habits. With my first couple of weeks of training under my belt, I’m determined to make my third and fourth marathons, both of which I’ll be running in 2018, my most successful yet. And just how do I plan to do that?
2017 was a rough one guys. But here's the good news: I came out on top. After dealing with what was potentially the worst year of my 26-year-old life, I’m bound and determined to make 2018 my best year.
It's every runner's favorite day: the day we reward our feet for the miles they have put in and splurge on a new pair of kicks
