“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31.

Over the river and to the hills

I registered for the Country Music Marathon..... April 30th. That gives me about 5 weeks
4 weeks of training + 1 taper week

Hmmmm. Not sure I thought that all the way through.  I've been running pretty consistently, just not really anything marathon training worthy.  I have been getting long-ish runs in on the weekends, but nothing like I did when I trained for Rocket City back in December.  This will be marathon #2 for me.  I'm not expecting a spectacular finish time, but I think it will be good to have the experience of another marathon under my belt.
Last year I ran the Country Music Half HERE, and it was pretty hilly.  Time to start hill training.
This is the elevation chart:
I'm glad I didn't look at that before I registered...

Think I'll hit the hills tonight!

Anyone have a last minute marathon training plan that works for them?
Please share!!!

Finally..here are a couple pics from the Delano 12 hour

6AM - MILE 1 of the Delano 12hr
6PM - Team "Together We Perspire" 72 Miles- Finished

Today I'm thankful to God for a healthy body!

Grace and peace,

P.S. If you want one of my Faith, Love, Run bumper stickers, comment or email me your address and I will send them out!
