This is it! Five days til the Marine Corps Marathon! In the past 2 weeks, I’ve been running a bit but also tapering a little more aggressively than maybe I should. And I’ve hit my 1000 miles in 2018 but first: 5 DAYS!!!!
So now that I’ve completed my training, I need to focus on my fundraising. I am running this Sunday to benefit the Travis Manion Foundation which supports veterans and families of the fallen. This MCM will be especially meaningful running for TMF. I am about 500 from my goal of $700. Please consider making a donation of any amount to my campaign. You can donate here: https://donate.travismanion.org/Jenn
Ideally I’d put some photos of me running on my page but all the TMF pages have this guy! I wonder what his time was. I hope to beat Oprah, she famously ran Marine Corps in 4:29. I’ve beat her before on this event. Let’s see about Sunday. Please donate!
This past week I hit my goal of running 1000 miles in 2018! My daughter said in the beginning “just run 10 miles a day for 100 days.” Yes, that would work mathematically but… I kept to 100 miles a month for the most part and having a goal did keep me motivated to run when otherwise I wouldn’t have. I joined the challenge through I love 2 run and got a finisher medal (coz I do love race bling).
Last week I hit orange theory 3 days, most fun was Friday at 5:30pm and afterward I went to the cantina across the street for margaritas and tacos.
Sunday I ran 8 miles as my last long run. Check out this video that I filmed afterwards.
See you out there,
