Hello!!!! Wow, it has been WAY too long since I updated the blog…
Last year, I would report weekly on my training progress for NYC, and I am going to try to start doing that again going forward.
I am now on week 7 of NYC Marathon training, and I cannot believe it. I was dreading this training so much, but to my surprise, it has gone amazingly well.
During this training, I have run some of my fastest times ever, along with my highest mileage month ever (214 miles!!!!!!!!). I have learned to love running in my new neighborhood, met new running friends, and reunited with old friends I had not seen in awhile.
Overall, this training has been awesome. And as long as I don’t lose my momentum, get injured, or have a natural disaster get in my way, I should be able to run a kick ass race on November 3rd. And I am pretty excited about the idea of that!
Below is a snapshot of some training highlights so far…

Thank you to everyone who supported me through my whining on the last few posts! Looking forward to sharing my progress over the next few weeks, and I would love to hear about yours too!!
