Oops....I did it again!

Oops....I did it again.  I signed up for another marathon!  After I crossed the finish line of marathon #3 at Marine Corps Marathon I said I wouldn't do one again...or at least for a long while.  But as the days pass, so do the memories of the pain! 

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.
Yoga in my Eddie Bauer Motion series tank, capris and trail shoes. 

How are you staying active this winter and what races are you training for this Spring?
