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.
