Marathon Training Offically Underway

I will be wearing bib number 6972 when I race in the Detroit Free Press/Flagstar Marathon on Sunday October 18, 2009. I am both nervous and excited not knowing what to expect and knowing how much training work I have ahead of me. I just got back from an 11 day vacation where I did manage to run on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday which was what I hoped to do. I got in about 20 miles in those for runs and they were all outside. It was nice not to have to run on the treadmill. Tomorrow morning will be on the treadmill at Lifetime for about an hour.

I am going to try to keep this blog more up to date, but I think I might have said that before.
