(Ran with a walking buddy today, so it’s hard to figure out how far I ran because I kept running circles around her.)
The marathon will be on Februray 20th, 2011, just 152 days from now (according to the website.) That was the first piece of necessary planning information that I needed to collect. From here, I need to create a planning calendar to figure out the best timing for my longer runs.
Let’s see: 151 days, divided by 30 days per month, means it’s in just about 5 months. In fact, this is the 20th and that’s on the 20th, so it’s easy to think of it as exactly five months from now.
