I’m excited to begin training for the Illinois Marathon taking place on April 28th. It will be my 9th marathon. Disclaimer: I received a free race entry to the Illinois Marathon as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave.com to review, find, and write race reviews!
I’m also excited to share that I’ve signed up to train with Mary and Rochelle from Lift | Run | Perform. They put together a program specifically for those running the Boston Marathon but others are definitely encouraged to participate. The Boston training doesn’t start till December 26th but Mary and I will begin working together to get ready for that training.
I told you I am excited, right? I’ve been wanting to train with Mary since September. Finally this opportunity showed up! For now my A goal is to PR (5:12:59 from October 2016) and my B goal is to get a sub 5 finish time. Man, you’d think that by now I’d get that sub 5, right? Nope.
My training will consist of running 4-5 times a week. It will also include cross and strength training, which I know is necessary, but always fail to do.
So excited to follow along as you train for Illinois! Not currently training for anything, but base building for a half Ironman next June 🙂
Thanks Stacey! A half Ironman? That is truly amazing! When will you officially start training?
Congrats on picking your next marathon! I’m excited to follow along on your training 🙂
Thanks! Have you decided on yours?
