She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
(this weekend I had a 'tweak' in the left inside knee - knock on wood it is short lived)
Last race was a 30k, 9 days ago and ran a PR of 2:25 while being dog tired and no taper. So I am stoked for this fall's 3 marathon in 5 week extravaganza. First one as a 3:30 PR, 2nd as a 3:20 BQ attempt, and 3rd as a whatever I can muster up run for the hell of it event
Hey Kirsten - remind me when your marathon is?
Mine is 5th Oct and I'm pretty sure your's must be about the same time.
That's hers as well - Hence the Avatar - Oct 5 Freak out!
I ran a mile and I liked it, liked it, liked it. firstname.lastname@example.org
Zoomie, I have no doubt that you're going to do great on your upcoming race. I'm betting on a 4:20
That's what the calculators all say based upon my HM PR...but given my rough training these last months I'd be thrilled with a 4:30...or simply <5.>

My marathon (Harrisburg) is on Nov. 9, so I still have 11 weeks to go.... My 2nd (of 5) 20 miler is this weekend. I'm currently around 44-46 miles per week, and I probably won't get much beyond 50.
I've cobbled together my own plan, using the long runs from the FIRST plan, plus 5 more days of running per week, mostly from Bart Yasso's plan.... but I'm thinking there's not enough speed work in that one, so I might be importing some faster speed workouts into it next week.
I have been very very very lucky this summer.. very injury free. I attribute it to a really heavy spring of aerobic running -- gradual increases in miles, virtually no fast running and lots of trails.
Endurance-wise, I'm kicking tail right now, but I need to put in some speed stuff, since that's definitely my weakness.
He who has the best time wins. Jerry
