Marathon Update

Filed under: Running — Tags: , , — Marcus @ 2:00 am

I am tentatively thinking of doing a regular Saturday post with updates on my Marathon training status, I am not sure how much people will care to read about it, but since it is taking up the majority of my free time at this point I figured I would start writing about it.

The picture above was taken during my run last week, we had a couple day of really nice weather and I was able to get outside to run for the very first time this year.  It was also the first run I have done outdoors in my Vibrams, and the first run I have done since I started doing any serious running.  I got up to Headlands state park right at sunrise, I actually got there before they opened up the park for the day so I had to park about a mile away, then I just ran there, and then ran back and forth on the trail they have that goes along the lake until I hit my 7 miles I had to run for the day.

I know that most of the people I know think I am crazy for training for the marathon, but on days like this, I really am glad I am doing it.  I got to spend an hour running on a trail watching the sun come up, it was warm outside, but there was still ice on the lake.  I am in good enough shape at this point that it is not difficult to run, and it sure beats what I know many people do, which is to roll out of bed after hitting the snooze button a dozen times, drown themselves in coffee and then proceed to try and fight traffic on the way to work.

  1. Wow, what an inspiration this beautiful sunrise must have been early in the morning.
    I am cheering for you on your training for the marathon, I think it is great.

    It is wonderful to have goals, especially a goal to be healthy and enjoy the beauty God has created to begin your day.

  2. Wow! Okay, now I’m jealous. I know how it feels to be out there running and just enjoying the outdoors. I really miss that. I guess I will never be able to do that again with my lungs. I’m cheering you on for that marathon………Need anyone to be at the finish line?

  3. But…But… The snooze button and coffee are soooo gooood…

    I think the idea of the sat. post is a good one, man. Helps to keep some of us less than communicative people updated on the training.
