Back in Training

Well I am back in training. After taking several weeks off to rest and recover post Plitvice Marathon, I am back in training. What am I training for? Glad you asked. I or we (marathonmom) are training for the NYC Marathon in November and than the Philadelphia Marathon 2 weeks later.
But that is not all, we just signed up for the Bluise Cruise 50K as a training run on October 6th. Needless to say, there will be a lot of long runs in the next few weeks and months.
Rest and relaxing
Not only am I looking forward to finishing this racing year strong, I cannot wait for the next year. We are already scheduled to run the Roanoke Blue Ridge marathon again. However, this year we will be doing the unofficial double marathon. Meaning, we need to start and finish a full marathon before 7:30am so we can run the official marathon. Sounds like fun, right? As we are also celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary next April, we've decided to fly out to California and do Born To Run ultra marathon. At first it was going to be the 50K, but that is silly, so we will be doing the 100K for the first time.

It sounds like we will be needing a lot of Tailwind in the near future!

Play time is over
PS. Marathon mom is an official blogger for the Blue Ridge Marathon in Roanoke, VA and she will be giving away a free entry in the near future. Stay tuned.
