I am in no way prepared to run 26.2 miles on October 7th. That distance will eat me alive if I attempt to run it unprepared and untrained. Have you ever had to make a tough decision because you were unprepared? How’d you handle it?
While last week was phenomenal in that I got most of my training miles done, including some cross training. But, this week… WOMP!
Week 4 went as smooth as butter. The team at Nike Women is doing an excellent job of making sure I am in shape and ready for these races.
Nike Women contacted me and selected me to be an ambassador for this year’s Nike Women’s Marathon in San Francisco. Ecstatic isn’t even the word!
If you’ve been looking to change up your routine, challenge yourself, get stronger, quicker and faster or to see how you stack up against some of your favorite elite athletes or even just your friends, get your hands on this shoe immediately.
This October, I’ll be taking on the Bank of America Chicago Marathon for the 2nd year in a row. It’ll be my 4th marathon.
I’ve developed this sort of “love” for the mental and physical strain it put me through. Less than 12 hours after the marathon, while I was laying in bed unable to move, I was thinking about my next marathon.
Tuesday Re-Runs: Training Runs for Beginners (and anyone else who’d like to join us!)
Every Tuesday at 6:30pm at North Ave. Beach. We’ll meet in front of Castaways restaurant. Just come on out! The first run will be this coming Tuesday, August 10th.
These runs are for anyone looking to begin a running regimen and want a little help doing so. It’s always so much more fun and encouraging when you run with a group. So, RenewedFitness will be out there each and every Tuesday (weather permitting) ready to run. We’ll be out there for about 45 minutes to an hour.
