I officially signed up for the Olathe Marathon today.
Thank you RuntoFinish and the Olathe Marathon committee for my free entry!
It should be a great race. It can't get much better when it's a hometown race...to roll outta bed and be there in 5 minutes.
There is a whole new course this year that looks to be much more exciting than years past.
The race starts at Garmin Headquarters. How cool is that. I'll be sure to take some pics so you all know where your Forerunners were born.
The marathon is 3.28.09 so I have a month from tomorrow to get ready.
As a lot of you know, it's been 3 weeks since my last run due to my Achilles issues. I'm really hoping to get in a 6 miler Sunday to see how it feels. Please send me good running vibes!
First going in to the Olathe Marathon, I was ready to get in some speed work (which is I think what got me put on the injured list) and see what I could do with this marathon time-wise. That's obviously out of the question now since I ran 13 miles the whole month of February. And my last long run was 14 miler in late January.
So...my goal for Olathe is to be healthy.
It seems like it's been forever since Disney.
It's time for another marathon.
Just 4 short weeks away.
