So the St. George marathon is in 3 weeks. I do not intend to do the whole thing, probably just 16 or so. Having an 8 week old does not really jive with marathon training but since I got in and we were going to visit some our dearest friends anyway I might as well do some of it. The plan is to do about 16 miles, mostly because I hear this is the second major spectator area, the first being at mile 7 which is not far enough. So i plan to run until I see Mike and he pulls me off of the course which I am sure he will have to do. I love races there is just such an awesome feeling when racing. Hopefully it will not be too hard to stick to the plan.

I registered for the Boston marathon this morning! It is $130, by far the most expensive marathon I have run but it will be worth every $!
9-9-09 9.25 miles 7:50 pace I was feeling good today which makes no sense since Lily had a rough night last night

Registration for the 2010 Boston Marathon opens tomorrow! It feels like it has been a long time coming, I guess in a way it has since I qualified for it pre baby. I feel like I have a long way to go before I am in marathon form again even though I have been running since 3 weeks postpartum and I ran through most of my pregnancy. It just feels a little harder than it used to. I am hoping that it gets easier the more my body gets back to "normal".
I thought I would use this blog to keep track of my training and all other things running. I did not want to bore people that are not interested in running with running talk on my family blog. So with that being said. let the fun begin!
