My training.  Brought to you by the numbers.

  • 2465 the amount of money raised for TNT
  • 57 donors
  • 464.9 miles in training
  • 24 weeks of training
  • 93.9 biggest month of running (September)
  • 283 miles on my Mizuno Wave Alchemy 8. + 26.2 after Sunday
  • 6 races since TNT training started
  • 20…Mile 20.  Where I volunteered for the LA Marathon, and where you see what’s left.
  • 30:48 New and only PR this training in the Modesto 5K
  • 1 out of 1.  Medal I won in the Udder Run.  I was the only one in my category.  But, it was mine.
  • 8-26 The day my world fell apart
  • 2 missed long runs because of previous bullet
  • 40 days until i recovered significantly
  • 8 pounds lost
  • 1 amazing running partner, Kim, who ran the whole thing with me during the week
  • 1 parent 1 sister 2 sons coming to cheer me on at Nike
  • amazing support group of friends too numerous to count

I have my suitcase.  I have my packet.  Tonight, I ran a short 2.8, and prayed that on Sunday, I feel as good as I did tonight. 

2 years ago, on Halloween, Kim said to me, “let’s start running…”, and here we are, three training plans later, 2 years…and I am going to be running my first marathon on Sunday.

And, I will finish.  You give me strength every day.
