On Memorial day I had a rainy 20 mile run with my buddy Corie and her husband Ironman Jon. The first 16 were spent with Corie chatting and trying to keep our HEAVY legs moving. The last 4 were solo with Jon who will also be my partner for the Green River Marathon this Saturday. If you are keeping track that means I will have run 46 miles in 2 runs this week, if I add 4 miles that will be 50 miles this week or 14 will be 60. WOWZERS!!! Crazy miles to take me into TAPER!!!
Jon is certified in many fitness related activities. He inspired me to take my running to the next step. Although I have not ironed out all the details yet....
Tall Mom will become a CERTIFIED RUNNING COACH!!! After June 26th I will not be putting in Marathon miles, leaving time for weight training, speedwork and learning more about our amazing sport. I am hoping to become a certified coach before 2010 comes to a close. If you are a Coach and have any advice on the best way to go about this I would LOVE LOVE to hear from you..
