A lot of late evening solo runs, miles of speed (both indoor and outdoor), freezing runs, frosty runs, snowy runs and Sunday morning group long runs, two pairs of sneakers, countless hours with the heating pad & foam roller, several sessions of leg work including those NEEDLES, have paved the way to my sixth Boston Marathon.
Every winter that I've trained for the Boston Marathon has presented its own set of challenges with weather, illness, etc. This year I have done every bit of training possible and I'm well prepared athletically. Health wise I've been yet again trying to kick a cold virus that has caused some congestion in my windpipe, according to the doctor. I have my puffer and I'll run by feel but I am ready. There's no doubt about it this has been a great training cycle for Matt, Marg, Rachael and I. Now let the stars align on Marathon Monday. ;)
I literally started packing a week ago, you know just in case!
I also updated my ipod!
