Tomorrow’s Run…

The forecast shows 70 degrees at 7 am.

I have a 4 mile run scheduled.  Should be a good one.

Tuesday’s 9 mile run was fairly good and I am starting to get back into the swing of things.  Have to be ready to do 10 miles Saturday.

The usual aches and pains become present but then fade.  I’ve learned to push through it.

By the way, those aren’t my legs.

Below is me just before the start of last years marathon.  I was so ready.  I walked to the race with LIFE Runner/friend and team-mate, Joanne Zitz from NY.  She was running her first half marathon.  What a great gal.  She raised the most money of all LIFE Runners for a local pro-life charity.

Before RaceI’m a slow runner, just started in 2010.  Those legs… ran for 6 hours.  I will never forget the pain in my neck and shoulders when I finished from the way I held my head the entire time.  As with all aches and pains, it passed.

I recovered fast though…Jim and I went to dinner that evening and I had a great glass of wine to boot.  I was pretty tired for a week and then was ready to start again.

I will run for the rest of my life.

  1. I love your blog it’s so positive. Here in the uk it’s normally cool all year , but this year we had a hot summer which was lovely, but I found out that running in the heat is hard! So I admire your dedication for running despite the heat. I’m quaking at the prospect of doing a half marathon which will take me 2 1/2 to 3 hours, but hearing about your 6 hour marathon gives me hope! Thanks Julie

    • Thanks Julie! Push on for the half marathon. I used Hal Higdon training program and it really did a great job preparing me for the marathon. Running those long distance races cause us to realize we can do anything. Good luck to you and thanks for stopping by. Stay in touch and let me know how your training goes. Have a great day! Anne
