Run Girl, Run

After months of training, my running has just reached it's climax. This morning I ran 20 miles - running every step of the way, topping off my 40 mile week. I can even say it felt pretty good. And the best part is that the rest of my training is all down hill from here. I have three weeks to go till the marathon, but from today on I get to start decreasing my miles to rest my body for the last, big, 26.2 mile sprint on September 20th.

How do you do it? 20 miles??! What an amazing accomplishment! Good for you! How did you know what to do?? Do you have a marathoner that helped with training or just do it all on your own?? Do tell.

Hi Sunny. Way to go on your training. I was just talking to my dad about his past runs and he mentioned running with your dad. It looks like it runs in the family. Good luck!!
