In a mere TEN days Kevin and I will be running the Woodlands Marathon and attempting to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 2013.
The training has gone smooth and I am 100% healthy (knock on wood) despite what the taper madness gods are trying to tell me about my right ankle - get out of my head bitches!
In a weird way this is officially my first stand alone marathon. Now it is not the first time I have done the distance as I have run two 50K's, an Ironman marathon, and paced Annie at the Houston Marathon last month. I ripped off my timing chip at the Houston Marathon so I would not be tempted to run faster, as it was Annie's day to PR, so I did not get an official marathon time.
So really it is my first official marathon but not the first time I will be doing the distance which makes the BQ attempt not all that crazy.
- BQ Time for Jeff is sub-3:10
- BQ Time for Kevin is sub-3:05
Next week I will lay out my pacing plan, finishing time goal, and the training numbers that have gone into the race.
