This week also marks the beginning of my road to Boston. I told ya last week how I’ve finally decided to take the plunge and train for my first full marathon. My goal is to run a marathon in October 2015, and have it qualify me for Boston. For me age group, I’ll need to finish in 3:35. While it’s totally doable, it’s going to take a lot of hard work. But I’ve been running half-marathons regularly for the past 4 years and I’m ready for this new challenge.

Since this week is Thanksgiving, each post is going to celebrate something I’m thankful for. This morning, as I head to Baltimore for a procedure, I’m thankful for my health. Even though I really wanted to run the Philly Half yesterday, I decided to take the week off from running (and blogging too—sorry) before starting to train again. After racing two weekends in a row, physically I needed the break. But it made me mentally feel sluggish and lazy. I practically jumped out of bed this morning to run, and as I was finishing the last half mile of my run, I realized how much my legs appreciated the extra rest.

New training logs always make me super happy, so I decided to finally updated my About Me page. I could only tell people I’m 24 for so long. Go check it out!
