The nearest big city is putting on a race. Run 8kms in 50 minutes or under. The premise is that you 'beat Beethoven'. The local symphony plays a little music in the town square, and the goal is to make it back before they finish the piece.
I'm running it with my friend. Not racing. I am just looking forward to a run with a good friend. Well that AND, the fact that I'm leaving the family for the day. I'm looking forward to a girlfriend day.
It will be June 1st....The first day of my 18 week countdown to the MARATHON. I think that is a good start.
I'll be posting more often as my life will begin to be consumed with schedules and training...and me whining a little ;)
