19 Days


Oh. I, for some reason am not allowed to comment on my own blog. Thank you Google for that one. So I'm not being rude and ignoring you, I just can't reply to comments anymore.

BUT MY MARATHON IS IN 19 DAYS!!! Ahhhh! I'm super excited. I don't know if I've ever felt this good about a race. I know I've never trained this hard, though. I've been putting in more mileage than I thought was possible... I've wanted to do a 100 mile week for a long time but just kind of for fun - just to see how hard it would be. But after a few of them? It's actually not that hard and it was damn fun! The training has been beyond awesome. There have been times where I was totally beat - like I'd literally wake up, run, and then get right back in bed - but I got used to it (I guess?) and now I feel amazing. My longs runs have been phenomenal and at the end of each week I'm so excited to see what's planned out for the next one. It's all I can talk about anymore (which may or may not be extremely irritating). And it feels rad. It feels like everything else I've done as far as training goes was just pretend and this is the real deal.


  1. Awesome to hear that you are in such a HAPPY zone just 19 days out from your marathon Heather!! Isn't funny how our bodies crave higher mileage. I can't wait to see what you pull off at Rock -n- Roll Denver :)

  2. Winner winner chicken dinner! Congrats on the victory, even if the time might not have been what you hoped to achieve.
