I hinted and now I’m confirming that that I’ll be doing the Marshall University Marathon this fall! Let me explain why, the course & training and my goals for my fourth (!) marathon.
Time flies when you’re having fun! I even forgot to do a May Currently, but I’m back at it with a recap of June and July. You can see from the photo that we’re making progress with our living room makeover, but it’s been low on the priority list.
I signed Nolan and I up for the Cincinnati Beer 5K a few months back. Between then and the day of the race, Nolan hurt his toe, again, and had to take a few weeks off running. Then we went to Paris and it was still bothering him. So, when race day came he opted…
I’m so proud of Nolan for running the Mariemont 5K! It was hot and humid! My phone said 73 degrees and 81% humidity. Weather aside, he ran the entire thing and got a 5K PR!! I think I was more excited than he was.
The 2019 Flying Pig Marathon was my third marathon, and while I didn’t reach my time goal, I had a very positive experience. After each marathon I learn more about myself and what works and what doesn’t.
I can’t believe we’re already through all the long training runs and we’re into the taper! Last weekend was the 22-mile run from Washington Park and now we’ll taper the next three weeks until the Flying Pig Marathon. Could not have gotten this far without this amazing group. 🙂
The Asheville Half Marathon wasn’t originally on my 2019 race list, but was an easy yes when someone from my group suggested it. It was a week after the Heart Mini half, which was on my 2019 race list. I’d heard mediocre reviews of the Heart Mini so swapping the two weeks on my Flying…
I’m 8 weeks into the 18-week Flying Pig marathon training plan. We haven’t hit the big miles yet, but I’ve already identified three Flying Pig Marathon goals. And it’s not all about time. 🙂
On Sunday Nolan and I ran the Valentine’s Hearts “R” Running 5k! It was Nolan’s first 5k in over 8 years and he did great! I’m so proud of him for sticking with the couch-to-5k training and showing up even when the weather was calling for a wintery mix at race start.
Like cold weather biking, cold weather running requires some additional gear to keep you warm and dry. Here are a few of my favorites that are helping me get through Flying Pig Marathon training miles!
