    Not Really Planned..

    I wasn't really planning on running a marathon. In fact about 2 months before I did, I told someone that I would never consider doing it. I love to run, and have run EVERY day for at least 6 years now. I had been bumping up my Saturday runs. One weekend after a 21 mile run, I...

    My Marathon Training Was Perfect, And Then....

    My training for my marathon went very well. After my 3rd 20 mile run my confidence was very high. Then, 2 weeks before the race I was at a birthday party with a bunch of toddlers and caught one of their bugs. The infection left me unable to run until about 3 days before the...
