This weekend I finished week 10 of the 26 week training schedule for the Boston Marathon with a total of 200 training miles run so far. Yesterday I completed my longest run to date at 13.1 miles which took me 2 hours and 30 minutes. This brought last week to a total 31.15 miles of training runs. I have been doing part of the training on the actual marathon course in Wellesley and Newton to acclimate myself to the course. I wish I could say that progress on the training is raising my confidence and optimism about being able to do this, but to be honest I am finding this a monumental struggle. I sure wish I was 25 and not 45!
So far you have helped raise $6,537 for Children’s Hospital and I am really amazed at everyone’s generosity! If you have not yet had an opportunity to register your sponsorship you can do so here.
