Marathon Fever

Time to dust off the ol' blog because I have just registered for the Hamptons Marathon!

I didn't think I'd be able to do a marathon this year. I anticipate graduating this year and moving overseas, and since I don't know exactly when that's all happening, I resigned myself to forgoing a 2008 marathon. However, the knowledge I'd have time to train, on top of being the most consistent and most in-shape running wise I've ever been has been haunting me. That, and the elusive BQ that wasn't meant to be given the weather conditions at last year's Twin Cities. I guess just the fact that I found this marathon meant I was looking for a marathon meant I wanted to run ;)

The marathon is September 27th, and for a variety of reasons I am 98% sure I will be in New York that weekend no matter what. It seemed like too good of an opportunity to pass up. It doesn't hurt matters that DBF will be in town that weekend (I'm trying to persuade him to sign up for the half...) and I don't have to worry too much about travel arrangements.

I'm planning on following the Pfitz 24/55 training plan, so I'll be starting soon! I've been running 30-40 mpw for a while now, so I should be set to crank it up a few notches. Wish me luck!!!
