So I know in my last post I said I was going to take a break from running and have a baby, but I think my husband and I are going to hold off a bit. In the meantime, I've decided that I want to run the LA Marathon on March 21st. They have a new course from Dodger Stadium to the Santa Monica Pier that looks so fun. I think LA is a great first marathon for me because a) I have a lot of history in LA, b) I can stay with my Grandma the night before, and c) it takes place on my Grandpa's birthday that passed away this year.
I'm kind of concerned that I basically took a month off of running, but I've run a lot this week and I think I'm back in business. At first I thought I was going to set a really crazy goal for this marathon, but I think I'm just going to try and run it under 4 hours. According to the McMillian Running Calculator, my half marathon times would put me within range to qualify for Boston, but who am I kidding? I've never run a full marathon before...My schedule starts in November, so I guess I'm gonna make my own schedule until then. In any case, I'm excited to have a new goal and race to look forward too. Something fills missing in my life without that...
