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...

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

Twin Falls Love Locks

During the Rim to Rim race a few weeks ago, I noticed something cool.

Someone started up a Love Locks overlooking the canyon! I told the BF about it - we always put up locks on places that seem fitting - but we never got around to doing our own lock in Twin Falls until I noticed this Twitter from ThisIsBoise.


If you follow the link that ThisIsBoise posted - it is a GIVEAWAY to those who put a love lock on the fence overlooking the canyon! Ok! I HAD to do this with the BF!

The BF got a lock and put our initials and other symbols important to us on it.

If you park where the new visitor center is, walk away from the bridge along the canyon path. 





Ooh look. There is it. 

 Our innitals, a bunny on the front and back of the lock, and Hoppity on this side of the lock.



I think our lock has a pretty good view of the canyon! 




If you are in the Twin Falls area, or are passing through this month with a love, you can enter the Love Locks giveaway here.

Have you and a sweetie ever put up a love…
