I started my marathon training again last week. I am shocked at how quickly I got out of the habit of training (and out of shape). I decided it was time to get my butt back in gear when I got winded going up three flights of stairs.
Right now I am registered to run the Ogden Marathon on May 16th, but I am thinking of running the Rock n Roll San Diego marathon on May 31st as well... and maybe the Avenue of the Giants half marathon on May 3rd because I've always wanted to visit the Redwoods and to run a race through them would be epic.
I have been invited to join Team in Training. It's part of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and basically as a runner you fund raise and run for an honored patient. Mike's aunt Kathy (who Kate is named after) died of Leukemia when she was a teenager, and I am sure we all know someone who has a similar story, unfortunately. Anyway, I was impressed by this organization and I am going to a meeting to learn more on the 31st.
Anyway, the purpose of this post was to let you know that you can keep up with my training now at www.dailymile.com/people/lydiametcalf instead of on my running blog.
Thanks for all your support!
