I did a very poor job of keeping up on my blogging throughout March and April. Training went mostly well, but there were some tough sections of life that kept me from making this part of my experience a focus.
So, I’m going to do a highlight reel of the last month and a half or so, and then get a real race recap from the Boston Marathon!
Highlights – A trip to Baxter State Park in -5 degree temps to run 16+ miles! Coldest two runs I have ever been on!
Mileage: 53.7 running; 3.4 walking (most running was on spikes!)
Time on feet/working out: 11hr 3min
Highlights: Raised the white flag – Snowmaggedon forced me onto the treadmill a couple times.
Mileage: 43.6 running; 7.3 walking
Time on feet/working out: 9hr 54min
Highlights: Unexpected trip to FL, Eastern States 20miler. Ran my flatest 50miles ever!
