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.
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. 🙂
I can’t believe I’m training for a third marathon! We moved to Cincinnati over a year and a half, I’ve watched the marathon twice and ran the 10K last year, so I’d say it’s time I run the full marathon.
The 2018 Indianapolis Monumental Marathon was last weekend. After 18 weeks of training, including a few half marathons, and the very anxious week before, it’s all over. It’s a weird feeling- I feel so accomplished but also sort of sad that it’s over.
The marathon countdown has begun!
I had a great race at the 2018 Hudepohl 14K Brewery Run last weekend! It was my first 14k, so no matter what my time was it was going to be my PR. That said, I was very happy (can you tell?) with my time. 🙂
Well, the cat’s out of the bag, I’m registered for the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon on November 3rd! See my training plan and how I’m incorporating what I learned from my first marathon.
