Are you training for the Marathon?

Our 5K training group attacked the cold wind of Swampscott this morning.  The wind swept our faces with the chill of one thousand icy slaps  of about 20 degrees!

Despite, all of the chills and wind, the 5K team powered through and pushed to complete their 30 minutes of running!

 

One lone walker asked, “Are you training for the Marathon?”   – Our only response was delight and a little laughter.  Sure, we’re impressive and it appears we’re tough enough to train for the marathon.   It sure feels like we’re training for marathon on cold New England mornings like today!

Congratulations to all the runners that are… training for Boston!  Hope you’re enjoying it and when running during these frigid cold mornings, remember and visualize you big upcoming moment on Boylston Street, with all the supportive friends and family, and you crossing the finish line of the Boston Marathon!   It’s only 48 days away now.  Keep your focus and keep up the great work!
