Running in Europe

Tomorrow I will take my running to Europe and I can't wait. I will be able to run along the best sites in Barcelona and Paris - how can you beat that? Talk about keeping things interesting.

It will be hard yet nice to take some time off of the regular regimen. No speed workout for 2+ weeks and off the regular schedule. Extremely appropriate 'break' prior to the initiation of training for Chicago marathon.

I will have to ensure I get SOME good running in as I will be eating lots o good food and drinking some phenomenal wine.....

This running will be maintenance - all in preparation for the rigor of Chicago training...3:30 is the goal - or breaking 3:30 :)

Return to the Blog

This blog started as a place for me to take our my frustrations commuting to and from work - then it shifted to running and then I stopped.

The last post was when I was determined to qualify for Boston on May 31, 2008.  I did qualify for Boston and since, ran Boston and qualified again.  The love of running has gotten more intense and it's great.

Next up: Chicago but not without Falmouth Road Race and a few other small races in between.  I think I will use the blog to document my running addiction and all that is entailed.

Tonight I sit - post a great interval workout with the coach and GTD last night and an easy 4 miles tonight.  Starving after dinner as usual :)
