i started off my 24th year of life with a few miles in the galena hills! it was really fun to have some entertaining ups-and-downs in the terrain. when we got back i did my 12 miler (although i think that it was actually around 11 since it got dark really fast on my way home). yay for running into a new year!
hi! so, i started training june 14th for the next marathon... the 2008 nationwide better health columbus marathon (http://www.columbusmarathon.com/). i am now a few weeks in to training and the event is october 19th. i am following a running plan that i found online from runner's world, and i think that it's given me more flexibility to schedule my runs. the long runs are on sundays, since the race is on a sunday, and the other two runs during the week are tuesdays and thursdays (and sometimes saturdays).
so far, it's been really fun to run and this morning was my 5K day. i ran the champaign c-u-in the park route that is mapped out (by faded orange spray paint) around the block. tomorrow, it's a cut-back week run of 6-8 miles in preparation for next week's 10 miles. hooray!
