Winter is Coming

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks


Today's 7 mile run was easy. I feel good about it. No walking breaks. No water breaks. Just pure running. Multiply that experience by 4 and a marathon is complete.

But as Ned Stark would say from Game of Thrones...'Winter is coming.'. This past week, my mileage was 18 miles (tues: 3, weds: 5, thurs: 3, sat: 7). My mileage won't be that low again for 12 wees. Here's what I have left:

Week 12: 24
Week 11: 25
Week 10: 24
Week 9: 29
Week 8: 32
Week 7: 29
Week 6: 36
Week 5: 33
Week 4: 40
Week 3: 29
Week 2: 23
Week 1: 9 + the big race

364.2 miles left to run before I'm done. I wonder to myself if I will be done. Will I want to run after the marathon? Will I become Oprah - achieving a milestone just to yo-yo back to the other side? Whatever it is - the honeymoon is gone. I'm now married and for better or worse, til death due me part, I'm stuck.

On a side note, a big thank you to Adam for my first donation! I really appreciate your help! Only $975 left to reach my donation goal.
