I’m stoked to announce that my father and I will be running the Marine Corps Marathon 2016 for the second year in a row! Last year, we embarked on our very first marathon for each of us and ran into every wall imaginable. Mental, emotional, physical, spiritual – you name it, we faced it. Needless to say, we learned a lot of lessons along the way.
This year, we’ll be lacing up wiser, stronger and better trained. We’re drafting a pre-training plan to build up miles slowly and smartly before we toe the start line on October 30th. After last year, we promised we would NOT be doing this again next year. Yet here we are, beyond excited to train together and run together in one of the best races in the country. Plus, I’ll be running with one of my favorite people on this planet.
I’m also excited to get back into a solid training plan. I’ve been playing a lot of soccer and running and working out on my own, but I love the changes my life and body take on as I tackle a training plan for months on end. I feel strong, sexy, happy and healthy – and find myself loving healthy food choices even more than usual.
I’m in a new apartment with a brand-spanking-new city to run in. So, congrats to everyone around the world that made it into the MCM Lottery – happy running!
