Ready to Run the 2016 Chicago Marathon!

Warning: stream of consciousness post ahead 😛 My “I just can’t wait to run my third Chicago Marathon” face 😀 My blogging has been inconsistent at best this training cycle and I can come up with a billion and one excuses for why that is. The main reason for why I didn’t write weekly training recaps is that reading other people’s training recaps isn’t interesting to…

It’s also been hard to remember to blog because I couldn’t do so for a couple of weeks – remember when my blog was hacked last month? Sad times. This week, I tacked some PTO onto the…

Chicago Marathon Training 2016: Putting It All Out There

Welcome to the first week of Chicago Marathon training 2016! In my past training cycles, I’ve listed at least 3 goals for the race. After talking about this with a fellow runner at length, I realized that part of the reason why I set multiple goals is to avoid feeling disappointed with myself if I don’t meet my “A goal.” When I don’t meet my…
