The Last Mountain To Climb

The final mountain of my marathon training has been conquered, the last 20 miler. It was the coldest morning in NJ this fall, making it quite difficult to leave my comfy, warm bed at 5:30 AM on a Saturday morning. Training for a marathon represents the epitome of discipline and just doing what you gotta do.

So the last 20 miler is done, and I couldn't be more excited. While I have enjoyed the challenge of marathon training,  I'm looking forward to having the time and energy to get back to other physical activities I like.

With that being said, I can't wait for the NYC Marathon and all the excitement that comes with it!

Happy Training!
