Today is one week after the marathon.  I didn't do as great as I wanted, but that's okay.  I was shooting for  3:25, instead 3:52, short of Boston.  I am blaming Ann Arbor and far too many hills and not nearly enough hill work.  Already planning for Detroit.  I am sure to hit my mark this time!!  I think I may have to enlist my pacers!!

They for sure can out me on track!

Yesterday, I ran a 10k for the fun of it!!  Still waiting for my official results.  My Garmin said 47 minutes, not bad one week out from a marathon.  It was in Northville, The Solstice Run, was a lot of fun.  Next, I may be doing a half in Lansing, September.... could be perfect to gauge my form for Detroit in October.

I let it happen again, away for too long.... busy, busy, busy with work, school, teaching and training.  I am two weeks out from Ann Arbor's marathon!  I just got an email this week that it is now officially a Boston Qualifier!!  OMG!  Talk about pressure!

I have recently, as of this week, am trying to follow the Thrive Diet.  I can't say it's a diet, it's a way to view food.  What am I doing?  A lot more vegetables than what I have been consuming and I have to say I feel great.  I am staying away from pre-packaged anything.  Going raw, slightly cooked, more vegetarian.  So, there it is, more to come later!
