1. I finally got a running coach. Coach Sara will be working with me on my three goals: 1) Run a sub-2 half marathon; 2) PR at the Chicago Marathon; and 3) Qualify for the Boston Marathon. I have a LONG way to go for #3 but I know I can do it.
Why a running coach? Well, I’ve been running for quite a number of years and haven’t made much improvement. I’ve followed different plans but it looks like they’re not working for me. Obviously I am doing something wrong. I know last year I went a “little” crazy and ran many races. Well, now it is time to get more serious with my running and hopefully achieve goals #1 and #2 this year.
2) I have been selected as an ambassador for the Fort2Base race on August 24. I ran this race last year and liked it a lot. There are two distances to choose from: 3 Nautical Mile (3.45 miles) and 10 Nautical Mile (11.5 miles). Please use discount code 2014F2BARROYO10 for a 10% off either distance.
