Day 4


My official marathon training started this week. 16 weeks of running, sweating, advil popping, complaining, aching and always being tired. Sounds fun, huh! I have done it twice and it is so funny that the hard part of the marathon is the training for me not necessarily the 26.2 mile run. That is not to say its easy but keeping my head in it for the few months of training, ignoring the fatigue in my body, and getting up so early to get it done before my hubby leaves for work is the hard part for me. On the up side the final days of those 16 weeks, marathon day are definately some of my proudest for me. Here is a LO to help me remember how great it felt the last time. My SIL Teresa also ran it with me, nice to have a buddy when the going gets tough. LOL
