Marathon Madness #13

It dawned on me today why the run on Saturday was so incredibly hard. I didn't eat well prior to the run, I didn't bring any water with me, and I had mentally prepared for a run about a third less than what was being called for.

Yesterday and today I've started in on a strength training program for my back and my legs. Poor posture really screws with a good run. Stronger legs just help for all the obvious reasons. I'm no athlete - although it was a funny comment from a friend - but I'm sure sounding pretty one track lately. Marathon is in 7 weeks or so. So, stick with me here for a bit. I don't know what the next chapter is yet. I'm totally ensconced in this one.
