    Boston Marathon Training weeks 3 and 4

    I can’t believe I am already 4 weeks into marathon training. It’s flown by! I feel like it was just yesterday that I “officially” kicked off marathon training, but now I am already a 1/4 of the way through it. Eek! It’s going to be here before I know it! Week 3 was a step-back week and […]

    Good morning, friends! I did my first long run of my marathon training on Monday morning, so now I want to tell you guys all about it! Pre-run eats: Steel cut oats (made in the crockpot <— super easy), eggs, and cantaloupe. Weather: Ever since I committed to running this marathon, I’ve been obsessed with the weather. I’m not […]
