We have decided to start training for another marathon in March which means that the long run trainings start....this weekend...oy vey! Only a month off from races and we are back at it. There are going to be a lot of very cold runs. Hopefully we don't get hit with 6 ft of snow again, definitely makes it hard to get in long runs!
We committed to doing the Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Our friends The Reeces are doing this for their first marathon and we told them we would support them. Hopefully we can run the race together, we'll see where we are all at. I don't want to slow anyone down. So my knee hurts and is stiff but I have some strength exercises that will hopefully work. I am super excited to do this race and cheer them on to their accomplishment (hopefully at the same time!)
So in the spirit of training for another marathon here is a reprint of the postings I had on Facebook after the marathon was over. I look forward to highlighting the events of our next marathon and I plan to post them here instead of annoying my Facebook friends! Sorry to those whose News Feed was bombarded. Looking back that was pretty obnoxious but I was really excited about our accomplishment and wished that my family and friends had been able to be there.
