Never Give Up (1 week to Boston!!)

The one week countdown has officially begun. Yep! One week from today, I'll be running the streets of Beantown. Maybe then it will finally sink in that I really worked my booty off, believed in myself and qualified last September. Maybe.
It has been difficult to get excited since I'm logging all my miles on the elliptical and the stationary bike. I might go crazy and ride an actual bike tonight and brave the waters of the swimming pool tomorrow to mix things up a little. I'm planning on making the most of the race, no matter how my leg is doing. I think I might steal my mantra from Dean Karnazes:

This week is a busy one. But I plan on posting about my Boston adventures, so stay tuned. The adventure officially begins on Friday!

In the meantime, it is (past) time to announce the winner of the Spartan Race Entry Giveaway!
And the winner is:
Greg Pochron!!!!!

Please email me at, and I will send you the information to register for the race of your choice. Congratulations!


  1. Good luck in Boston! I hope one day to make it there and run in it also. I started low this year and have myself a goal of running 350 miles. Maybe next year I'll look into trying to qualify myself.

  2. Yay for Boston! Almost there! I hope the leg will behave well.

  3. Two years ago I ran Boston injured. I had spent the weeks prior on the elyptical and in the pool. You will savor Boston. I felt no time pressure. I knew that the work had been done when qualifying. In fact, being injured allowed me to enjoy each step. I visited with people, high fived and can say I loved every hot (it was a record heat wave that year) step. You know you can do matter whether you are running, walking or crawling. It's Boston! ENJOY!!!
