Marathon Training Starts Today

Today is the official start of my fall marathon training.  I have taken on the challenge of training for my 5th marathon and plan on running this one in Rochester, NY on September 23rd.  I realize that it is 6 days before my wedding, but for me the training will keep me in check and also help with the stress that I know will come as the wedding day approaches.

I will be training once again with my awesome Coach, Taneen and the many friends that I have made while running with this group.  This time around I am adding some crossing training and weights to my routine, so we will see how that goes.  I have fallen in love with spinning, since I was forced to take it up as a replacement to running last fall.  I also started taking Body Pump classes at my gym Xsport Fitness, and love my instructor, Heather.  I’m hoping for some toned arms to go with my wedding dress.

I have a few other races planned for this summer, including a mini relay race, a few 5ks and a half marathon with my sister in August.  I’m looking forward to this new challenge and training with the motivation of friends through the heat and humidity this summer.
