A marathon consists of running 26.2 miles, and that is it. Easy enough, right? I wish it was. I want to train for real this time and so I will keep a basic log of all the days I run, the distance, pace, location and calories burned, just because. Now, I realize that this is not 100% accurate, but it's still nice to have a general idea of whats going on, ya know? So here is the first few weeks of my log all thanks to the runkeeper app!

I love this picture from our run last night. Baby T put his hands behind oh his as we were walking around the block to cool down acting like he was so exhausted from the long run, ha! Love that kid!
Wish me luck!! And honk if you see me on the streets. I am sure there will be more updates of the training in the future.
