Tundra Trailblazers: Keep the focus

I can’t believe that race day is just about 2 months away. Time is flying. Training is going pretty great for me. Weather has been favorable and so far, injury free…and lets hope it stays that way. I really look forward to the Prevea runs to gather with all my running buddies.

During our last Saturday run, I got to meet “THE PACER” I have been trying to hunt down. No not really, I just wanted to put a face to the name. My girlfriend, Lindsay and I were in the middle of a conversation about pace, Boston, GU…and all of a sudden we ran into Adam. He gave us some great tips for training to get to Boston and tons more motivation to work harder for our goal. Thanks Adam!

As the miles get longer, my appetite grows bigger 🙂 Anyone else have that problem! We run for food, right?!?! Or wine/beer!!!! 🙂 I still make sure I keep my diet in check, but consume a few more calories during the longer run weeks.

I am still a strong believer in cross training during my marathon training, so I still continue teaching fitness classes, cycle classes, CrossFit, swimming, yoga, TRX—you name it! I like to stay fit! Or maybe get a break from my kids. Just kidding 🙂 We do need time for ourselves though. It’s ok to be a bit selfish when it comes to your health.

I am looking forward to this weekend’s run in the warmer temps. Keep the focus in check and run along my friends!
