Even though I'm officially done with the crazy-long runs, I've still got some exciting events on the running agenda-- for starters, the Poland Spring 5-Mile Marathon Kickoff with Shannon on Halloween! I ran this one in 44:02 last year and am shooting for a PR between 40 and 44 minutes.
And thennnnn, the following week, I'm doing a pre-marathon three mile fun run and pep talk with marathon Olympians Ryan Hall and Deena Kastor. I covered this event for Footwear Plus last year and the wonderful folks at Asics invited me back again. Deena was slated to run NYC this year, too, but for some reason, she's slacking off and bailing on us . ;-)
(Maybe the ASICS peeps will read the blog and send me some shoes! A girl can dream.)
Meantime, I've got many blog topics to cover (The taper! The fact that Boston registration closed in less than a day! The playlist!) and so little time! Here's hoping I'll manage to fit it all in. :)
