3 days into the "confirmation" stage of Boston registration and I have still yet to receive word from the B.A.A. The good news?... hardly anybody else has either. If you haven't been following, the Boston Marathon closed out it's registration for 2011 in only 8 hours-- a significant record v. 2 months the prior year. I managed (after 4 attempts) to get my registration to go through and received my confirmation number that my registration has been received. Now we're just waiting for them to put my name up on the "Entrants" page! Why such a big deal?... ooooh only because I've planned the last year and a half of my life (and 40 marathons) around this ONE race! NBD...
Marathon O' Marathons... Continues!!!
We're in my longest streak of marathon weekends right now! CAN YOU FEEL THE EXCITEMENT? No?... well then come to the races!!! This is what's on the current sched, join me or stop by the finish if you're around...
Bimbler's Bluff 50K (Trail)- (CT) This Weekend!!! 10/24/10
Spinx Run Fest-(SC) 10/30/10
Marshall University Marathon (WV)-Repeat State 11/7/10
How Ya Feelin?... I FEEL GOOD!
Post-Detroit this weekend I managed to sneak in not 1, not 2, but 3 free massages!!!! It made such a world of difference for recovery! Now if only I could hire a personal massage therapist to travel with me-- pshha! Seriously though-- Feeling good! 3 done, 3 to go and this weekend is a trail race, so it'll be much better on the joints, albeit a little tougher on the hamstrings!
As always, I'm looking to hit sub 4:00 marathons for all my states. The Bluff is a 50K and they don't have a recorded 26.2 mile point, so that one we'll have to come back to. I do hope to make Spinx and Marshall sub-4:00 even though they're at the end of the marathon of marathons. My reaching goal? Make at least ONE of them a BQ and TRY for a PR at one-- if I'm feeling goooood!
I still owe you a Detroit Marathon review as well as a Bimbler's Bluff race RUNdown! *Coming soon*
As always, if you're planning on joining me for one of the upcoming marathons and you're not listed in the "Upcoming Races" tab in the nav bar please shoot me a comment or an email and I'll add you!
