Last eve I attended a Jeff Galloway presentation. He is a great speaker and I found it fascinating to hear about his efforts to qualify for the Boston Marathon after 10 years of easy running with no time goals. That he qualified by 6 seconds in Florida at the Space Coast marathon, running intervals of 30 second run/15 seconds walk, is just great. And the experience of running Boston this year was one he did not want to miss. He makes a persuasive argument for the run-walk-run method.
Here's a picture of the members of our Galloway group who attended last night. I'm the second from the right in the back row or the 5th head from the right. Jeff is near the middle in a black shirt with "JG 2014 13.1" advertising his new half marathon in Atlanta in December:
I'm running this eve at 6:30 pm at the lake with several of these runners. Hubby is on an all liquid diet today in prep for his surgery tomorrow, so I don't have to worry about timing supper. I am hoping hubby will bring the dog, sit by the lake, and chill a bit so we both face tomorrow refreshed.
