It's Marathon week and a first!

I can't believe the Indy Monumental is only 5 days away! It's one of those things you don't think will ever get here, then suddenly it is!

Saturday I ran my last 'long' run with Nikky. She'll be running Indy too, and it'll be her first marathon.
After so many weeks of long runs, 8 miles was a welcome break. 

I will talk more about the marathon this week, but I really am feeling more excited about it and more confident. It's such a mental game. I just have to get my mind in the right place, which I feel like I am doing.

And, for the first time EVAH, I ran 100 miles in the month of October. I've gotten close to 100 a few times in the past couple years, but I finally made it. Pretty excited about that!

 Do you keep track of your monthly mileage? If so, what's your number for Oct.?



  1. wow... that's impressive! you've been killing it lately!

  2. Yay, so excited for you! I can tell just in this post alone that your mind is in a better place, you've got your confidence and I can't wait to hear how it goes.
    Good luck this weekend!!!!!

  3. 225 km for October, my marathon is Nov 29th. Good luck with your marathon!

    1. Wow, great mileage Allee! Good luck at your marathon too!

  4. Way to go! I track my mileage on Runkeeper but it's utterly disappointing. Rather than try to hurt myself getting in the rest of the running miles this year, I started a streak of at least one mile per day through Dec. 31st. And will keep the same goal for next year. Good luck on Saturday!! Cool weather but the rain they had been predicting has moved in earlier so it should be dry. :)

    1. I am so impressed with your running streak. I've never been able to do that! Thanks girl, I'm so glad the weather has changed and there will be no rain now!

  5. Wow! 100! Killing it is right! Sending you all my good vibes this weekend for an amazing marathon! Can't wait to hear the recap! Xx
