Top 10 Marathons To-Do List: Big Sur

Marathon #1 on Cindi's To-Do List* is Big Sur International Marathon. I was THIS close to signing up for Big Sur this year instead of Little Rock.  But it was more expensive than I wanted to do this year and I didn't like the timing as much (it's May 1st this year).  But I seriously …

Little Rock Marathon Training Recap

The training plan: Pfitz 12 week/55 mile max, modified to add an extra easy run or two each week and to switch one of the easy runs to a hill workout of some sort.  Oh - and I miscounted the weeks, so I actually did 13 weeks of training!  I think I did a good …
