Big Things Ahead

I'm taking a short break from my race recap extravaganza to share some big news.

Are you ready for this? Because I'm not.

I'm running the Chicago Marathon on October 9, 2016!

I think I just died a little by typing that. I'm seriously freaking out. I'm terrified of this race, and I'm worried that I've made a huge mistake, which is why I've waited so long to publicly say anything. Training started at the beginning of June, and my level of fear continues to grow a little each week. Basically, this is my schedule until October:

Monday - Rest/Stretch
Tuesday - Easy Run/Hills
Wednesday - Cross Train
Thursday - Speedwork
Friday - Cross Train
Saturday - Easy Run
Sunday - Long Run

Wish me luck!

Oh, and if I don't make it out this alive, then please tell my cat that I loved her.


  1. They say if you're not scared of running a marathon, there is something wrong with you! Good luck!!

  2. Cannot to wait to high five you when you finish (nor can I wait to be a Chicago marathon spectator for the first time)! It will be AWESOME!
