Baltimore Marathon Relay Training Day 1
See that medal above? I'm running 7 miles to own it. I've mentioned in the past that I'm running a leg of the Baltimore Marathon Relay on Saturday, October 16, 2010 with my SIL, hubby, and our friend from college. I'm pretty excited about it...and nervous. That 7 miles is more than I've ever run before. Hopefully I can hit 7 miles on race day, though it will be a slow 7 miles. LOL!
So, today was day 1 of training. I have to go from the 3 miles I ran this past Sunday to 7 miles on Oct. 16th. My goal is to add a mile a week. So, today I ran 3.3 miles. Thursday, I need to run 3.6 miles, so that Sat. I can run 4 miles. And so it goes...5 miles on Oct. 2, 6 miles on Oct. 9 (my birthday!), and finally 7 miles on Oct. 16th.
I think I can do it. I want to wear my medal proudly. I may just wear it around all weekend. Why not? I earned it!
