I have some excellent or terrifying news depending on how you look at it:
And it’s only like 14 weeks away.
On November 28, I’ll be running 26.2 miles on the NCR Trail which is one of my most favorite places in the whole world to run and also the location of my first marathon last year although that was the Pennsylvania portion of the trail and not the Maryland portion. I’ve already heard so many wonderful things about this race both from my local BRRC peeps and from Courtney who ran it last year so as nervous as I am, I’m also really amped.
Even better, I was chosen to be a Trail Blazer or Ambassador for this race which means that you can expect to see me talking about it a lot here and on social media as if I wouldn’t be doing that anyway because it’s a MARATHON. I had no real plans to do another one this year, but here I am. I have plenty of time to prepare for this right!? RIGHT!?
I guess it’s time to figure out how I’m going to train for this thing!
If you live local to me, I highly suggest that you check this one out. It was on my radar anyway because it really is the perfect time of year for a marathon with all the longest runs happening when it’s not so crazy hot outside and the trail is absolutely beautiful. Feel free to email me if you want any more details or just feel like listening to me rave about it!
So does anyone have a good training plan to suggest for me?? Who else has a big fall race coming up??
OMG I’M RUNNING ANOTHER MARATHON!
