Who knew marathon training was this easy?!
Well it's not when the neighbor's dog barks all night long and they don't answer your 4 phone calls! I'm so tired I can hardly walk around or think straight! Good thing I only have 5 miles on my run plate tonight.
Go as long as you can, and then take another more step.
Salmon Marathon in Salmon, Idaho. Looks pretty. Then Fox Valley in Illinois. They are both road marathons. Regarding my training, I have a pretty good base, I didn't mean to imply that I only trained three weeks for a marathon, but that the last three have been pretty intense.
