Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let me say that I'm starting this blog to document my marathon training. My friend, Deb, and I are running the Lake Placid Marathon on June 14, 2015 and I think writing about it will help keep me accountable (and might even be fun!). I know only 3 people in the whole world will read this-- my husband, Deb (my training partner for this race and many of my life's adventures), and my mom--oh, and Deb's mom, so I guess that makes a total of 4 people who will read this. However, I'm going to write this as if hundreds-- no, thousands of people are reading it. I can't let all of my faithful readers down, so I must run!
Deb and I will be following Hal Higdon's Novice Marathon Training Plan (click here if you want to check it out) and will officially begin the 18-week plan on February 8. I plan to update this blog as frequently as I can throughout the next several months leading up to the marathon to document the highs and lows of this journey. Through it all I plan to keep my eyes on the finish line! Check back for updates!
Happy running! Run happy! (I have my husband to thank for that line!)
