When I saw that there was a marathon that follows a very similar course to one of my favorite destination long runs, plus a one day coupon code...I jumped on it. I still have that nagging desire in the back of my head telling me that one day I CAN and I WILL qualify for Boston. But in order to do so, I have to run more marathons....and train really, really hard.
So, this May I will be hitting the road for Marathon #4 at the Coastal Delaware Running Festival. I am a bit nervous for the timing...May could potentially be very hot. This past fall's Marine Corps Marathon was in the 70s and I felt very dehydrated. So it may not be a BQ, but hopefully it will be fun!
I am have been testing out some new gear this training cycle and have been very happy with the Eddie Bauer Motion Series. Very comfortable and I am loving the mint green color of my new capris and matching top.
So until then, I am getting in the training runs as best I can, cross training with spin, yoga and weights and working on speed as I still hope to PR in the half marathon at the Rock n Roll Nations Capitol in March.
