It’s Official – I Signed Up For A Marathon
Last week, I mentioned that I was toying around with the idea of running a marathon in the near future. On Saturday, I signed up for The Thanksgiving Marathon that takes place on Thanksgiving morning in the Bronx, NYC, NY. So naturally, I kept up with my running over the weekend to stay on track for being ready for this target race.
Saturday, I ran 5 quick and easy miles on the beloved Perkiomen Trail. It felt good! And it was beautiful to run on a section of the trail that I haven’t been on for a while. And then Sunday morning before church, I ran 18.7 miles (again on the Perkiomen Trail). Overall, the run went very well. I definitely ran more quickly than I should have, but it felt fine up until the last two or three miles. I think I’ll need a day or two for my legs to recover from this run. Going up and down stairs isn’t meant to be such a challenge. My legs better recover soon though, so I can get back to training for the upcoming marathon.
So our family is starting to plan our trip to NYC. We’ll miss seeing members of our extended family over the Thanksgiving holiday, but I’m sure we’ll have many new exciting memories as we embark on this adventure.
What are your plans for Thanksgiving? Do you have any fun, crazy, or interesting traditions?
