I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

32 kms down...2 more crazy long runs to go..

Above is a virtual tour of the Marathon route I will be running. I have to admit that it looks rather intimidating... and LONG!!!

My marathon training is back on track. I just ran 32kms today and ended strong. My legs were very very sore, but I ran the entire last 5km and felt great considering I have just run for over 3hrs. I'm thinking the Super strength Motrin I took at hour 2 kicked in ;)

I am now running only 3 days a week. A 10km, a 12km, and a long run. In between I'm trying to rest, eat well, stretch, and visit the massage and chiro. I should be doing some core strength but I will admit that I'm not. I should also add in some cross training on the bike.

So far I'm holding up. 54 days to go, and 3 weeks until the Half Marathon race. I'm ready for the 21k. It is amazing how short 21 feels when I finish running a 32. It seriously proves that running is 80% mental.

Happy Running,

You are A-W-E-S-O-M-E! I've been enjoying following your training and I wish you the absolute best as you finish your training and start tapering.

That was an awesome video of the route. Thanks for sharing. My husband is running the marathon in Toronto. I wonder if they have a similar video for his route.
Anyways...I love reading your updates on your progress. Hope to one day get to your level. You provide a great guide on how to get there.
