Here I come marathon #2!!
After much contemplation, I have decided to run Mayor’s Marathon (here in Anchorage, AK) on Saturday, June 18.
Okay, so I haven’t made it official by actually signing up for the race yet, but it is official when I blog about it, right??
I have known since my first marathon that I wanted to run another one! It was just a matter of figuring out when and where.
I would have loved to run a marathon this winter but living in Alaska doesn’t make that too feasible. I could have run a marathon last August, but since I had just ran my first marathon two months prior, I knew that wouldn’t be the smartest move, so I had to wait until this summer to do another one.
I have been training all winter long with the intention of running a marathon this spring/summer, so even though this marathon will be here in less than 50 days, I am not worried about the training for it since I have been training for it all along. This also explains why I ran 17 miles yesterday.
I didn’t know quite what to expect, but overall it was good—not great, just good.
I would be interested in making it again using buckwheat and possibly adding fresh berries to it or cocoa powder!
Today was a beautiful, sunny day with some relaxing for me but also lots of productivity:
- blog reading
- talking to my family
- staying in my pajamas far too long
- watching my sister graduate from college from 3000 miles away. I watched the live feed on the internet, but I wish I could have been there to celebrate with her!
What was the highlight of your weekend?
