68 days until the marathon
142 miles of long training runs left to complete
20.11 hours of long training runs left to run
There are some interesting things about those numbers. In 68 days the weather will hopefully be nicer than today and spring flowers will be starting to come up. Some of you may be coming to cheer for the marathon or maybe some families will be on a very fun vacation. The “142 more miles of long training runs” and the 20+ hours of long training runs caused me pause. Those are pretty big numbers. That distance is the equivalent of running from my house to the Mass/New York border! That feels far when I drive it in a car!
Running a marathon is a physical and mental challenge that is not for everyone. You have heard me say it before that it is an easy thing to do for our amazing school and it truly is. I am committed to raising $17,500 this year. So far I have raised $1,200. That is 6.86% of my goal (wow - there was a lot of math in this update!). Thank you to everyone who has donated so far.
