10 Miles a Week

When Matt told me that he was only going to run 10 miles PER week for the marathon, I was skeptical. He tried to reassure me that his CrossFit training would get him across the finish line, but I still couldn’t buy into it. About a month ago, Matt did a half marathon and finished in just over 1 hour and 40 minutes. I was impressed; but still, that was only half the distance of a marathon.

Well on Sunday, Matt proved me wrong. He ran his first marathon in 3 hours and 46 minutes. And while the last 5 miles were rough, he finished with a smile on his face. I am so proud of him and totally inspired to run next year!

 

On a totally unrelated note – be on the look out for the very first GUEST BLOGGER post. It is definitely going to be a good one. And if you want to write a guest blog, let me know!

  1. Looking good Matt…Way to go!!

    My Sister-in-Law just did a marathon 2 weeks ago (4:42:10 age 53). It had been 26 years since she had run her first. She did a lot of training this summer and had a bit of “recovery” time afterward. Ellen said her quads were very sore and the hardest thing was to lower herself into a sitting position.
    Still don’t know why people want to run 26 miles. Of course this is the wife of my brother-in-law that does the 24 hour bike race.
