I’m about 75% decided in favor of running Grandma’s Marathon in Duluth, MN on June 22. I had been planning on doing Portland in October, but even if I got a Boston qualifying time there I probably wouldn’t get a spot since registration opens in September. I won’t be 100% prepared for Grandma’s, but I should be in good enough shape to qualify, assuming that I can run a race reflective of my training (so far that hasn’t happened – current score is Marathon: 3, Andy: 0). I need to decide by the end of the week, so I’ll post about it then.
In the meantime, here’s today’s run (I’ll post tomorrow’s later this evening):
AM – 5mi easy
PM – 5mi easy, 4-6 x 20-30 second strides
