For those of you who are unfamiliar with the significance of today, its Marathon Monday and for me the kick-off of Marathon Season. One of these days I plan to make the trek to Boston to spectate this amazing event! A friend that is an incredible athlete (ahem she is ranked in the nation for tough mudders) is running Boston today for the first time so a big shout-out to Ashley!
The Boston marathon is every runners dream. To qualify and then do well the day of the race is even more of a feat. For me, the idea of Boston is to kick my butt in gear for a more regimented running routine. After becoming very ill in February and missing my chance of participating on an awesome relay team, I stopped running for awhile. The appeal was gone and I preferred waking up to attend CrossFit for my exercise.
My next race is the Virigina Beach Rock N'Roll Half Marathon on September 1st!
Question of the Day: What do you use to inspire you? Is it an event like the Boston Marathon? Or a friend's encouraging words?
