Marathon Training: 48 Hours

In Life, Marathon on February 17, 2012 at 10:27 am

In less than two days, my race begins. Kelly and I are headed to Newark now, and we’ll soon be flying to Texas. By tonight, I’ll be in full on marathon mode, eating all the carbs I can get my hands on and stretching every waking second.

The highlight of my week came when I announced in my Weight Watchers meeting yesterday that I was about to run my first marathon. There was a lot of excitement and cheering for me as my coworkers cheered me on, and one of the members who is an avid runner game me a special good luck charm. When she was about to run her first marathon, her Leader gave her a WW star charm that she has now taken with her on every marathon she has run. It has seen over 100 miles of racing, and now it flys to Texas with me.
