Marathon journey #4 starts tomorrow
Sunday, July 14, 2013
Just finalized my plan for the Outer Banks marathon on November 1oth.
North Carolina will be a good friend's last state to complete a marathon in, so a group of us are going down to share the fun. We a renting a 14 bedroom house of the beach.
I've had increasingly faster finish times in my three marathons to date, cutting 36 minutes from my first to third. A new PR will not be my focus for OBX. I plan to focus on avoiding injuries, enjoying the process and improving my running form.
Come 2014, my goal is to qualify for Boston in the fall.
I have been competing in BLC 22 as a proud member of the Onyx Outlaws (yeehaw!) This coming Wednesday will mark the midpoint. So far, I'm down 7.2 lbs. I just need to continue to stay focused for the second half.
