I might or might not document my upcoming winter training. Or any training that I end up doing between now and April. I am NOT a winter runner. (Unless you count a turkey trot and an occasional 3-4 miler on the dreadmill.) I much prefer vegging on Netflix and walking up those big stair machines at the gym.
But here's the thing I am MOST proud of since my last post in January:
I said I thought I was ready for another full. And I did it. I signed up in March, began seriously training when I stopped nursing in April and found a new running group when we moved in June.
Saturday, October 10th I ran a 3:40:12 marathon and felt amazing. To read the post I wrote on Fairfield County Moms Blog, click here.
I don't think a BQ is in the near future. I was 5:00 away from a qualifying time but would probably need to run 7-8:00 faster to get in. Perhaps this is one time when aging up will be to my advantage.
Here's to taking a break and seeing what comes next...
