Boston Marathon Training & Fundraising Update

It has been quite some time since I have done run training without biking and swimming. I have to say it is a lot easier to manager; however, with my history of stress fractures I need to be very careful. It’s all about training smart and recovering smarter.

I am two weeks into a 19 week training program I wrote with the QT2 Systems and Your 26.2 training protocols. I wouldn’t have it any other way! For all those diehard runners out there, it’s OK to heart rate train as a runner… it’s not just a triathlon thing :) I have to say it is tough taking a step back and staying in my HR zones. At times I just want to take off, but I know patience will get me where I need to be come April.

I am really looking forward to running Boston again…especially with Expect Miracles Foundation :) Meet the running team who will be focused on raising money in the fight against cancer.

I am also very happy to have some of my California crew running Boston next year… David, Bransby, Jon, Kerry, Kim, and Shawn. Running together and exchanging training stories is fun and it does help with the motivation at times ;)

A quick update on the fundraising for Expect Miracles Foundation. To date I have raised $3,750 with all of your generous donations. That does not include company matching, so I am very pleased. Thanks to all who have donated!! I really want to make it to 10K by April. I know it can be done!

A little incentive for those in the giving spirit… donations made before 12/22 will be entered to win (4) EMC CLUB Tickets to FROZEN FENWAY with access to the private EMC Club!
