Week 16


Tomorrow is race day.  I can’t believe the sixteen weeks of training has come to a finish.  It was a long time to train and I’m ready for the big finale! 

This afternoon’s adventure at the expo in the Philadelphia Convention Center was fun.  My friend Lindsey met up with me and before grabbing lunch we explored the wonderment that is the marathon expo. 

My “star-struck” moment of the day was meeting Bart Yasso, Chief Running Officer of Runner’s World’s.  I’d like a job with that title!  He was promoting his book and while we were chatting I looked next to him and spotted Hal Higdon, author and Runner’s World writer, most well-known for his training plans.  Yasso also is one of the announcers at tomorrow’s race.  I was pretty pumped to meet these icons in the world of running.  And of course I put a plug-in for the blog.

Week 16 Recap (11/13-11/19): 3 days of running totalling 13 miles, 1 yoga session and 200 push ups

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
