I write today, dear readers, to finally share some really exciting news: I’m taking on the Richmond Marathon!
Yes, I am still running (and it’s still easier than chemo).
A couple weeks ago I piggybacked the Sports Backers Marathon Training Team’s route and ran 20 miles through the beautiful streets of my hometown with one of my favorite running buddies.
Hands down it was the best training run I’ve ever had. The sights were beautiful, the weather was perfect — everything just fell into place. I can only hope for a repeat on Saturday.
It’s been a crazy adventure, and I’m looking forward to some time off from training, but not until I take (as a friend of mine so generously put it) my 26.2-mile victory lap!
Anyone else running Richmond? Shout it out in the comments!
