2011 National Marathon Training Recap ...

This time tomorrow I will be toeing the line at the 2011 National Marathon. Getting to this point was a journey in and of itself, one that started back on January 1st. Since then ...

I have run a total of 521.47 miles
at an average pace of 9:21,
for a total of approximately 81 hours and 15 minutes,
which is 3 days, 9 hours and 15 minutes of running,
just to get one of these ...


A FINISHED TRAINING PLAN.

12 weeks of training. 5 runs per week. 2 new PRs.
0 injuries. 1000s of laughs.

26.2 - YOU ARE MINE.

Hey I'm behind on my blog reading and just realized you're running this one too! I'm running the half also, I'm up here visiting from FL. I was with Courtney when you ran into her at the Polynesian and didn't recognize you! You're totally one of my favorite running bloggers. Anywho have a fantastic race and I'll keep an eye out for you!

I see a PR in your future!

Beware the course is not pretty, and it's hilly, once you accept that, just worry about your run.

I'll be there doing the half...
