This is a totally boring picture, I guess. But it is the plan that will get me to the marathon start line. I hope we don't have any major snow events that get in the way of my long runs. Last year I ran 5 half marathons, 2 10 mile races, and a 5K. My goal was to get my time under 2 hours and my last race was finished in 1:54:48 so I was totally happy I beat my goal time. So far the plan is going well. I fell in a pot hole and sprained my ankle in December, but took some time off and am slowly coming back. So I now run with a head lamp instead of a flash light and that helps. I never in a millions years thought I'd get out of bed at 5 am, put on all this gear, and go running. It does help that my neighbor goes with me most of the time and we're going to do the marathon together. Long distance running is so much better with someone to talk to and pass the time. We ran 16 miles this past weekend, and that is the farthest I've gone so far. Hopefully the ankle will hold up and in a couple of months I'll have a marathon under my belt!
