A few weeks ago I went to the Golden Hills Marathon as a spectator hoping to get some inspiration. Oh boy did I get it and then some!... A casual conversation with a woman that had run the GHM and was next going for the AR50 turned into a transformative moment. I mentioned that it was one of the races I was considering but that it was too soon. She said "you can do it"... to which Marcelo confirmed "it's six months away, you could totally do it!"... and in that moment the switch flipped.
A week later I signed up! Yes, signed up. To leave no doubt that I must get to work. I researched training plans and combined two, then modified them (by taking mileage off, lol) and now have it posted on my wall.
Official training begins the week of November 16th. Twenty weeks.
Here we go!
