I hope you have had a chance to visit the newly remodeled Albertsons on Broadway location in Boise. I had to stop by there because its not like any other Albertsons I have been into! It is really impressive! This weekend I made my first visit to this store, and I am sure to visit often to get a few things that I can't get anywhere else.

Albertsons on Broadway is a new type of Albertsons store. One that curates an experience within each area of the store. Here's a taste of what you will discover at our new Albertsons on Broadway: The best from our own backyard. With deep roots in Idaho, we aim to give center stage to our local farmers, producers and makers, highlighted throughout the store. Vast international section. Hard-to-find items from around the world that elevate…

Countdown to Marathon

I may or may not have told you about a marathon I am doing in a few weeks. Like September 29th - 9 weeks away!

Run 4 Luv Header, Idaho's Valentine's Fun Run

I did the half last year. I really, really wanted to do the full marathon but decided that 2 half marathons in a weekend were going to be challenge enough. (I did a half marathon the day before this one) This race helped cement my desire to put myself to the ultramarathon test.

I don't think I can pose and look cool at any race.

Since I got my running mojo back, I gathered up a free Runners World Smart Coach plan and really hope to not die during this race. I know that 9 weeks isn't a long time to really prepare for a race after such a long time off... but that is why I am giving 12min/mi a shot. I am using the plan below as a rough draft plan. There is a good chance I won't be doing speedwork or tempos, but that's just me being lazy.

The mileage plan.
The Marathon distance scares me. Maybe because it's a bordering running line between fun and serious training/running. I run all distances for fun, but a marathon for fun? That is SO scary to me.

Fave pic, like, ever!
So, I am going to attempt a fun marathon with 9 weeks of training. I had fun at the half last year. I mean, there was WINE on the course. How could I NOT have fun combining 2 of my favorite things again this year?

Running & Drinking - YES!
If there could be wine at all water stops...

What are you doing Sept. 29th? Will you run/drink wine with me? 


  1. If there were wine at all water stops I would never finish! LOL. Sounds like a fun race, good luck!

    1. I don't think I would ever finish with wine at all the water stops but it would be fun for a bit! :-)

  2. Sounds like fun! All the best with your abbreviated training!

    1. I know it's only week 1 or so of this training plan, it seems to be going good!
