Today I finished week 7 of my 26 week training schedule for the Boston Marathon with a total of 126 training miles run so far. Last Saturday I completed a 11.2 mile long run without even having to call my wife to rescue me! I met with the team coaches and the rest of the Miles for Miracles marathon team last week. It was nice to put some faces to the names! Next week the long run bumps up to 13 miles, so wish me luck.
So far you have helped raise $4,137 towards my goal of $6,000 for Children’s Hospital and I think that is great progress at this point! If you have not yet had an opportunity to register your sponsorship you can do so here.
