6 weeks down, 12 weeks to go

Hard Work This year is going to be different
Last year I admit, I did not know what I was getting myself into
I thought then, “I’ve run for two years now, I can take on a marathon
I coasted through training, only getting sometimes one run in during the week
I knew it would be difficult, but I knew I would at least finish it
October 10, 2010
90 degrees
Pains, cramps, dehydration
…I finished it…before it finished me
6 hours, 49 minutes, and 51 seconds
Now I am putting in the work
I am finding inspirations from all directions
I am finding a strength within myself that I never knew existed
Every decision I make up until the race can effect me
I don’t allow myself to slack
Get ready Chicago Marathon 2011

I’m back…and this time I’ll be ready
