Day 147: June 2, 2013

I did not get into New York Marathon, so it means I will be running the race in 2014.  I was going to run a different marathon in November, but after reading some reviews and thinking long and hard about it, I decided to run a marathon in February.  This allows me a few months to get into marathon training shape, and be ready to go.  I selected a relatively small race, with a very flat and fast course close to home.  I hope that I will be in Boston Qualifying shape by February.  I’m about 10 pounds lighter than my last race, I have been doing a lot of weight training with cross fit, and I’m doing a lot better on my diet than I had originally anticipated.  The last several races, I have improved by 15-20 minutes per race, so I’m really hoping to continue that trend and dropping to a Boston Qualifying time.  If I able to do it, I will run New York in November and Boston the following April.

            Besides researching new marathons, I cleaned up our yard.  I managed to mow the lawn.  Our front lawn is dying; I don’t know what to do.  My husband hired a chemical yard company to keep it green.  The backyard is green, the front yard, isn’t.  I don’t know what they sprayed, but I think I’m going to buy some grass seed, and try planting grass seed.  There are only a few green patches, and they are on the sides and in the back yard.  I also went through a few closets, and got rid of all the ripped towels and sheets.  I’m now vacuuming and doing the dishes.  It seems mundane, but I’m getting excited for a houseguest.
