Sometimes I think that I run more for the calmness it brings my mind then my want to be fitter and stronger. At this moment in my life my mind is LOUD. For some reason when I’m out running it quiets and lets me enjoy the fight with the pavement. Running isn’t easy but its soooo helpful. I’m getting excited for our next challenge. We have signed up and made a training plan for the Philadelphia Marathon. It will also be my one year anniversary running. Within my first year of being able to run more than one mile I will have run 2 marathons, 1 ½ marathon, and broad street. I think that a pretty good first year.
My time goal is ambitious for the Philadelphia Marathon but I think it is also doable. I think this marathon will be much easier this time around. It was basically impossible feeling last time so there is only up from here. Yesterday I ran a very slow 7 miles. I’m really into distance but because I haven’t been running much its hard to do distance a good pace because I’m out of shape. Getting in to shape now, please.
