5 easy miles. (I didn’t wear a watch for this one)
I’m going to keep this blog post short & sweet because as you can see below I still have more packing to do! This training cycle covered 1191 miles of road and trails to get ready for one fast 26.2 mile stretch into Boston next Monday. Along the way I started with a new coach, PRed in the only two races I ran this cycle, and I’ve run workouts I never thought I could. It would be safe to say I am the fittest I have ever been. That being said, we all know there are 101 things that can go wrong on race day but I believe in our plan and will focus on executing it perfectly. No matter what happens I will be leaving every ounce of effort out on that course and will be grateful that I get to run such a historical race with some amazing friends. I have worked my tail off, race day is my celebration, and I’ll be doing everything in my power to make sure it is a good one.
I am bib number 1195 for those interested. My goal is to PR in a big way (current PR is 2:50:50) Send any extra speedy vibes my way! Wishing you all a great weekend and to the Boston Marathoners an incredible Patriot’s Day!
