After a rocky start (knee pain during my very first training run), things are looking up, and I’m feeling pretty great going into week 3 of training. A bunch of you guys asked how I’m balancing running with CrossFit/KFIT, so I decided to share my […]

    Marathon Talk with Monica

    January 16, 2015

    Good morning! Happy FRIDAY! As you know, I’m training for the Boston Marathon with Team Stonyfield.

Last Friday, we (the Stonyfield mom bloggers) received our 16-week training plan for the Boston Marathon from Megan, our running coach.

    My training for the Boston Marathon with Team Stonyfield starts right after the holidays, so I am getting ready for 16 weeks of preparation. (I still can’t believe I am running Boston. Ahhh! It’s a dream come true!) Up until now, I haven’t encountered any super cold weather—just one run in the low 30s and I […]
