Somewhere along the way I’ve heard it said that the only thing harder than running a marathon is training for one. I believe the only thing harder than training for one is training for 3! I have had my sights set on joining the Marathon Maniacs club since I first met a maniac at the Blues during my first 26.2 mile morning. Make no mistake it is tiring to have 3 races with just a few weeks between each. I struggled between Marine Corps & St. Jude finding the effort to keep up with training for 2 weeks after months of training only to taper again and get set for another race. Luckily I was not alone in my St. Jude training. Now, with Disney Marathon & the Goofy Challenge just 3 weeks away I am almost at a lost for the energy to put forth quality training, let alone strong together a few back to backs to get ready for the Goofy Challenge. I was able to crank out a fantastic midweek run yesterday. It was the first time I’ve set out by myself in months. I turned the screen to clock and told myself I was going to run for an hour making up the route as I go. I was very surprised when I saw my distance after I finished.
