Wow, it has been a few years since I posted last, a few years since I last ran a marathon and just a few months before I turn fifty. I suppose it is as good time as any to get back in the swing of marathon training and writing about it.
I entered the Chicago Marathon lotto and will find out Thursday April 21st if I got in (or not). If that falls through the back up Marathon is the Quad Cities Marathon. The QC is only 2 weeks earlier than the Chi so my training schedules are pretty compatible.
Winter training has laid down a stable foundation and my long runs have been at over 10 miles for more than a month now. Feeling healthier than the last couple years heading into spring training, so this should be a good year.
Looking forward to more of these updates. Talk to you all soon.
