In order to take advantage of the holiday and to honor those who gave their lives so that we could live in freedom (including the freedom to run), I ran something a little different today. 5.60 miles starting at 6:30, which in Alabama means — a little too late in the morning to beat the heat. We ran what has become known as “the hill run” as coined by my running Coach Danny from Run University. It was a tough run, but very cathartic and ended with iced coffee — always a good thing.
Tomorrow, my training schedule starts anew. Lululemon Sea Wheeze Half Marathon, Disney Tower of Terror 10 mile, and Marine Corps Marathon are all on my late summer / fall schedule. In order to keep me on track through what is going to be lots of June work travel, I’ve decided to attempt to participate in the Runner’s World run streak from Memorial Day through the 4th of July…hope I can see if through.
What are your Memorial Day plans? Relaxing or running, I hope you have an awesome day and take a little time out to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.
