Happy New Years!

Happy New Years to everyone! I am so excited about this New Year, Im hoping that it bring along a lot of new and exciting changes for me, so we shall see!

As part of the new year, I have committed to training for a full marathon. I have ran two halfs and feel like it is time to step it up a bit! I have decided to run the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon because it is close to home, but still in a cool city that I have never seen.

I'm so excited! So today is Day #1 of training. I am hoping that I have time for everything...three jobs and full time grad school keeps me pretty busy! But we will see how it goes. I am going to try my HARDEST to keep all of you updated on the progress as I go along with my training.

I have decided to loosely follow the Hal Higdon's Marathon Training program. Has anyone ever followed this program? What did you think?

So today starts the training. I am headed to the gym for a cross training day. Any advice, tips, ANYTHING please fill me in :)

Love,

Em.
