13 more days until my first marathon of 2014!! Eeeeeekk! I am so excited! Today was my last 2 digit long run for my NVM training. It was actually supposed to be 8 miles but I didn’t think that was enough, so I made it 10. Check out my run for today:
Here is an amazing view of the city towards the end of my run
Today’s run was pretty easy, and slow. I have been reading Hansons Marathon Method and while my official Hansons training doesn’t begin until next month I am starting to incorporate their training method into my running. It seems like a great training plan. And after all I just learned while getting my personal trainer certification their plan MAKES SENSE. I can’t wait to start it and see where it takes me. It will be especially interesting to compare CIM 2012, 2013 and this year since I’ll be using Hansons Marathon Method for CIM 2014.
So today got off to a late start. And I mean late. My run didn’t start until almost 11. I planned to start at 7. I could have run a marathon if I started at 7 and ended at 11! Perspective. Although, how am I supposed to get up and disturb all the kids??
After my run and a day of chores I met up with my dad and took the dogs to the river. It was nice to get out there with them. Someday I’ll have a dog friend of my own to take to the river…
Another great picture from today. Sacramento can be so beautiful. It makes me happy I decided 4 years ago to call this place my home. This city has so much to offer! Running, food, beer, wine, friends, river, bike trails…I look forward to many more years here!
Speaking of home, another reason I am super exited for Napa Valley Marathon is because it will be my first race in my hometown! I am lucky it is not too far away from Sacramento. I will be running 2 races in Napa this year. The first is Napa Valley Marathon (obviously) and second is ZOOMArun Napa Valley. I am an ambassador for this race (first time ever being an ambassador – for my hometown!!). Come run this race with me! It is Saturday June 28th. There is a half marathon and 10k option. I’ll be running the half marathon (again, obviously 😉 ). If you’d like to run this race use code NAMB6 and save 10% off registration!
