Mardi Gras Marathon

It's right around the corner... I am currently training for the Mardi Gras Marathon in New Orleans on Feb. 25 and soon I will start getting anxious about the performance... I am a planner and although I haven't completely stuck to my training plan, I ran my last long run, 20 miles, last weekend, and I wasn't even sore afterwards. I kept wondering what I had done wrong :) But now my planning mind turns to travel, food, rest... the crime rate in New Orleans!! Robby and I might be literally running for our lives. My goal is to run the marathon in 3:45 to qualify for the Boston marathon next year, but I will be happy also to beat my last marathon time of 4:39.

I'm already planning to run the Marine Corps marathon in October, since my brother is going to run that one as well.

No worries...I'll make sure to pick both of you up, toss you in the car and get you hydrated quickly.

Geez Rachel, you were not sore after running 20miles? Hell, I hurt just reading about it! lol
Best of success to you and Robby*
