I’ve got a Marathon on the schedule!!


Now that Thanksgiving’s over it’s Christmas time! In the center of Silver Spring is a toy tree. It was a little strange, but colorful! Although I feel like it probably torments the kids as they walk by haha. It brought back a few memories from my childhood, like the turtle sandbox and the kitchen set. Let’s just hope they donate the toys when the tree comes down.


Over the weekend I was invited to run the 11th annual Potomac River Run Marathon on May 4th. This will be my 2nd marathon ever! I haven’t ran one since Oct 2011. If you remember it was a disastrous race, so i’m stoked to get the chance to have a marathon I can use as a practice run before I attempt a more serious race in the fall. The Potomac River Run Marathon is a flat out and back TWICE course. Yes you read that correct, you go out and back for the first half, and the same out and back for the 2nd half. Like I said it will be a really good training marathon. Especially for the mental part.

Last week’s sweat days!

Monday: 8m treadmill easy  8:33/pace (5 strides at the end)

Tuesday: 15 min abs

Wednesday: 4 treadmill miles 8:20/pace, 45 min chest/biceps

Thursday: Rest

Friday: 8.5m easy 8:13/pace 

Saturday: Rest

Sunday: 3.1 

Total Miles: 23.6

  1. Yay! So excited you have a marathon in the plans! Since we both ran Chicago (and it sucked for both of us!), it only makes sense to train for another one at the same time, right?!? Well, I’ve kind-of-secretly started training for another one on March 1st. I’m just going to follow the training plan and see how I feel – if I burn out, I’ll let myself burn out and wait for a time when my life is a little more calm. But I’m going to try! Let me know if you’re using a training plan and how it’s going!
