It's Official

We are doing another marathon! Tony signed us up last week for The Woodlands Marathon - in The Woodlands, TX where I grew up and my parents still live. It's happening on March 3rd, seven weeks away at this point. We are not doing a serious training plan like we did for Big Sur, but we are making sure that we are doing some longer runs. It's just impossible for us to do a strict schedule with Cole and working right now. I think we will still be fine though. We have already done a 16 and 18 miler. We want to get in a few more quality longer runs, but that's about it.

With the new year we also started our third running journal! We keep track of our distance, times, and weekly/monthly/yearly mileage. Last year Tony ran 2,192!! miles. His goal was 2,000 and he definitely did that and then some. My total was 745, but I did have a baby and was pregnant so I got off to a slow start the first four months of the year. The previous year, 2010, Tony ran 1,623 and I was at 1,207. I don't really have a yearly goal, but I try to be close to 100 miles a month, but it doesn't always happen. We shall see what 2012 has in store for our running, but a marathon is first up!

Hopefully, it won't be warm yet and it sounds like you'll have family cheering you on. Sounds like the Woodlands marathon will be fun!
