|I’m pretty sure I had just asked the girl beside me — “Did we pass mile 23 yet?” Crystal City is brutal!|
A fallen Marine Corps Marathon photo (thanks to a Facebook friend who was snapping pix during the race and found it in his selection yesterday!)
I will never forget the day I broke 4 hours in the marathon because I worked so long for it! Hopefully it is followed by breaking 3:45 very shortly though 🙂
It’s also a good pic for today because…it’s kind of main in this….AWESOME feature I scored in “Women’s Running” magazine! How exciting 🙂 I am the “Blogger on the Run” and was featured as the main story on the front page of the magazine yesterday:
If you click HERE, you can read my full interview! I was so honored to be a part of this feature and actually recently subscribed so I can’t wait to start reading “Women’s Running” monthly as well.

With all the upcoming treadmill runs I will have to train for Shamrock, I’ll no doubt need to stock up on mags!
Speaking of which — Glenn & Lindsey are writing me a customized training plan to break 3:45 at my Spring Marathon. I’m planning to run Shamrock in March and have a back up of the Carmel Marathon in Indiana in April.
I’m a little scared because winter running has never been my thing. But…since I have decided I cannot face paying $200/month for Crossfit, I’m going to stay focused on running and intersperse some “Traveling WODs” here and there into my training.
|Last year’s Love the Run You’re With 5k was literally like 0 degrees. Torture!!|
I am much more inclined to winter running these days than I used to be. I actually LOVE that fresh, cold air in my lungs. I know I’ll be doing a lot more of it so I’m hoping my lovely readers can help out with some tips.
Does anyone do a lot of cold weather running? Can you send a few tips my way? I might do a compilation if I get enough — might as well spread the love!
