I have a week off from classes but I'm still at school. Why? I thought it'd be a good idea to get some work study in since I'm a bit strapped for cash right now. However, sleep sounds so good right now!!
Anyways, had a really good run yesterday afternoon and I'm looking forward to the week ahead.

So today was supposed to be my long run...actually 8 miles to be exact. I have been feeling a bit tired this week so I decided to cut it back to 5 miles just so I can get some distance without killing myself. Turns out I barely made it 3 miles and felt like **** the whole time.
When will this end???
I know I need to change certain things in my life (i.e. sleep habits, food intake) to enable me to have more energy, but I have never felt this run down in a long time.
I've decided to run the Baystate Marathon as my qualifier for the Boston Marathon. It's close and from what I've heard its the easiest marathon to run that will qualify you for the Boston. One thing I've also found out about running in New England is that no race is ever easy.......ever.
Until next time,

Hey everyone! I have finally decided to start a blog. Each day, I will try to post about my training for a marathon (TBD) this winter. My hopes are to qualify for the Boston Marathon which is in only 10 months!
I am going with this for now, but I plan on doing more research and finding something that may work a little better with my schedule. Feel free to send me any of your thoughts, ideas or comments as well!
