Another Marathon in the Works

July 26, 2010 § 2 Comments

Yep, the title of this post says it all. I’m going to be running my crazy butt all over Gilbert and where ever else my training takes me for the next 19 weeks to get ready for the California International Marathon (CIM).

This week marks week #1 of my training and I have to admit that I’m more nervous this time around than I was when I started training for my first marathon. Going through the training before has opened my eyes to how much it kicks your butt, the sacrifices you make along the way (toe nails, Friday night happy hours, even tan lines) and the absolute havoc a 20-mile run can have on your mind and body. I say – BRING IT ON!

The next 19 weeks will see me travel to Europe for the first time, run a half marathon, and turn the big 3-0. Along the way, I’ll be training to complete my second marathon. The last half of 2010 is sure to be kick-ass exciting and full of surprises. Let’s just hope those surprises don’t include any injuries (which is probably wishful thinking, but hey, I’ll handle them as they come).
