One Month To Go...

I can't believe I'm saying this but the countdown is totally on. One month exactly till I run the Philadelphia Marathon. It's crazy how when you start training you think that training will never end then BAM you have a month left to go. At this point I can't do anything to better prepare myself. My goals have changed... at fist it was getting my BQ (3:40:59 or faster)... now it's just to finish under 4... and climb up the steps for to take my Rocky picture at the Philadelphia Art Museam afterwards. Nothing I do now will help me at this point. Besides getting prepared for taper I have a 20 miler to accomplish the first weekend in November... then it's all dowhill from there!

More to come...

Climbing up the stairs is the best part. :)

I did it last year - plenty of painful fun.

Good luck. I did Philly in 2007, I really enjoyed it. A local bar gives out beer at mile 22, don't forgot to have a little. I did and afterwards the ones that didn't wished they had. Have fun.

how exciting that it is just a month away! I'm training for a 1/2 marathon (my first ever!) and it is less than a month away too and I'm so excited/nervous!

Thanks for letting me visit- I'm so excited to be finding all of these great blogs devoted to running! What great motivation and encouragement!
