Marathon Training Update

May 3rd 2006

I’m enjoying a day off from running today with less than five weeks to go before I run my first marathon and I’m supposed to say I’m excited for the day of the marathon.

That would be the positive self-talk I’ve been encouraged to adopt in the books I’ve been reading.

The truth is I’m both excited and scared.

I’ve learned I can run a lot more miles than I ever dreamed I’d attempt, and I’ve also learned God didn’t place me on earth to be a long-distance runner…that’s for sure.

But for one day, it’s my goal to be prepared to cover the 26 miles and 385 yards required for the marathon.

The most frequent question I receive is – “So what’s your goal time for the race?” First, I don’t consider a marathon a “race.” Second, I have no “goal time.” My goal is to FINISH the marathon…the same day I start running it.

Stay tune!
