Marathon Training: Week 5

Week Five… DONE!

Quote-

Each week I try to find one inspirational quote that keeps me motivated. This week it was a quote from my very own daughter. She said, “Daddy I want to run a 5k with you.” She’s 6 and she has noticed how much her father enjoys running. That was motivation enough to finish the marathon. If my running inspires her to be active and run… wow.

Musings-

Cold and rainy. The whole way through my long run this week I was dodging rain but it was still good. Have to admit running on a treadmill for most of these training runs has been tough though. I’ll be glad in about another month when the weather begins to warm a little. At least int the 50s.
