Marathon Confirmation Card

It arrived in the mail today and now this upcoming Houston marathon is getting exciting! My greatest hope is that I don't come to a point where I feel like my legs just cannot go as fast as I need them to. I want to run this race strong to the finish.

After some minor pain from Monday's 20 miler, I took Tuesday and Wednesday off. Thursday I ran 5 miles on the treadmill (thankful for my TM when it feels like 25°) and today I ran 6 miles at the park. I only felt a small amount of pain during the run. Today's splits: 9:09, 9:08, 8:21, 8:28, 8:12, 10:40. Ave: 9:00/mile.

Degrees How-to °: I used the numbers lock key on my netbook, but if you have a number pad you can skip this, and then I pressed ALT and 248. This information is on my Running Resources page along with a how-to.

  3. Oh Tina you are going to do great! You are ready! I didn't receive one of those in the mail sniff, sniff??? I may have forgot to update my new address with them. I know the countdown ticker on my blog is fast approaching single digits! I am getting nervous and hope I can just settle down and enjoy the race. Maybe we will run into each other=)

  17. Thanks for your comment on my blog!

    Oooh, I'm so jealous that you get to run outside most of the year. I wish I only had the odd treadmill run, but unfortunately, that's my normal winter routine (I'm a wimp and it's cold/icy up here!).

    I hope the pain has gone away... it's almost marathon time... good luck!!
