When I log into my blog, it asks me “what’s on your mind” for the next post.
I’m thinking, take it easy for the first 6 miles, don’t let the downhill take you out too fast, do I stop and visit at Wellesley College, dig deep at mile 20 for Heartbreak hill, enjoy the crowds on Boylston Street as I cross the finish line.
The Boston Marathon is not until April 20, 2015. Registration is September 10, 2014. Hotel room is booked. 20 week training plan starts December 1, 2014. I need to book my flights by January 15, 2015.
I do have other things on my mind, but they are usually deferred to the question, “Will this help or hurt me in my training for Boston?”.
