I've been doing my best to be a good little runner and train very well for the next 5 weeks. Several bumps in the road (first-ever case of poison ivy...YIKES, an expansion at the office, two awesome kids, etc) have slowed the training at times but nonetheless I'm still pumped to run the following events:
Saturday, Lapham Peak Marathon
September 14, North Face Endurance Challenge Madison Marathon
October 13, Glacial Trail 50k
I'm looking forward to a solid racing effort at Lapham Peak, shooting to beat my time from last year of 3:37. Then, at North Face, I think 3:30 is a solid goal. And at Glacial, I'd like to PR the course (sub 4:09).
Next post will be a report from Lapham. Let's do this!
