I ran less distance at a slower pace this year, but it was because I was recovering for the first two weeks of the month from vein surgery. I did a ton of walking, though, so I'd surpass my running from 2010 if only I'd counted my walking! I was also faster in 2010 because my spring half marathon (Lehigh Valley) fell in the month of April. This year, I'm not running my spring half marathon until May 7.
Speaking of that, I'm all set for the 500 Festival Mini-Marathon next weekend. It should be fun, and as of now it looks like the weather is going to be pretty nice. The race is super, super flat. I don't expect a PR, but I should finish relaxed and happy!
I've felt slow and sluggish during my runs lately, but I think it's because it's been unusually warm. I felt much better this morning when it was only 50 degrees.
Galloway training starts in just two weeks! I'm excited to start my marathon training. I've gotten used to the idea that I'm going to be running the New York City Marathon. This morning at the trail, my friend Jack pulled up and blasted "New York, New York" for me! Unbelievable that I got in!!!!
