Goodness, I use so much stuff when running a marathon… I just made a packing list for my trip this weekend. And literally, more than half of the items are must-not-forgets for my run!

Just to name a few: Shoes
Socks
Visor
Hydration belt
iPod armband
Headphones
Refuel gels
Body glide

…and that’s not even all

I’ll take a coffee with a side of ice pack. Icing before 9am is a new record. #runner

"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run."

Not excited about the fact that tonight’s marathon training consists of resting and an ice bath for the foot that I kinda sorta sprained yesterday by being a total spaz while chasing my dog over uneven ground. Ugh, so not fun but still an active part of training.

Marathon training countdown: 13 days left

…and I’ve come to realize why. Training is hell! Literally! Marathon training is not for the faint of heart, it’s not for people that shy away from pain management, it’s not quick and easy, and it’s not something you can do half-way. Marathon training mandates commitment, discipline, strength and determination. Keeping up with a run and workout schedule daily, that is training. Waking up before the sun to run until your body is in physical pain, that is training. Feeling as if you’re rewarded by sitting in an tub filled ice and later a hot shower, that is training. Repeating this cycle for months leading up to race day, that is training. It’s the endurance that the runner experiences physically, mentally, and emotionally that will take them to the finish line.

This is what my lunch looks like today. 
Lemon quinoa with roasted brussel sprouts, asparagus, and mushroom topped with a bit of feta

This bike is boring. But, it’s a great combo of 20 minutes bike followed by 20 minutes treadmill.
