2009 ING Hartford Marathon

WOW!  19 days until race day. I always get a little sad at the end because I feel like I should have run faster or should have eaten better. I guess I will not be allowed to be an elite runner. I hope to see everyone at Bushnell Park on October 10, 2009, it will be a great day of fun. Visit AU Official Charity for 2009 Hartford Marathon.

Words of Encouragement

“ The big day is approaching and my goals have changed. Speed is not my concern, fun is. I tried a couple of speed runs, my old injury from the marathon started acting up, I have black toe and I am getting tired. Is this a sign of old age? Am I really coming to the end of my running ? NO! I always get really tired and discouraged at the end of my training but I never give up!”
