Lansing Marathon Week #10 recap

Today was really the first time that I started picturing the marathon itself and started thinking about how I can't wait to run another marathon.  I love everything about the marathon.  I love the anticipation of it.  I love the race itself.  I love seeing different courses.  Love seeing the crowd support.  Love seeing the …

22 miles of crap!

The 22 miler was a mixed bag.  Success in that I got it done (yipee!) and got my thinking/work done (yipee!).  Fail in that it felt off from the beginning and the last 5 miles were really sucky (9:07, 9:23, 9:44, 9:31, 10:04).  My finish, with the miles getting slower and slower and feeling suckier …

Lansing Marathon Training, Week #6 recap
