three 5ks, one 10k and four half marathons later, i have decided to run the marathon. no biggie. just 26.2 miles. holy gps.
so this march i entered the lottery for the chicago marathon. i have twelve days until i find out if i made that percentile of guaranteed entries. eek. longest wait ever. but i do have a backup – the detroit marathon. each are in october and a week apart. i am committed.
i have booked hotels, googled parking and pinned restaurants… best farm to table, best donut… you know the important stuff. i have pinned what to bring, eat, wear, and do’s and don’ts. i am a planner.
so until then i have a superhero 5k (my fourth year) on april 30th to keep me motivated. my marathon training doesn’t begin until june 5th or jun 12th (depending on which marathon i enter) so i plan on enjoying those weeks of training free. i plan on reaching my ideal bmi also to lower my chance of injuries and decrease my running time. especially when that weekly mileage starts creeping up and up.
i will keep you posted.
until next time… happy running!
