Life Goals and other Random Nonsense: 300 miles and 30 years

300 miles and 30 years

Two weeks ago I turned 30, and this past weekend I completed my 300th training mile. Both feel like pretty significant milestones. According to the training plan, 20 miles is longest run I am scheduled to complete before the actual day of the marathon (April 29th, 2007) and I completed that run 2 weeks ago. I am now only two weeks from the actual marathon, and I had intended to write so much more often! From what I have read, 20 miles is about as far as a person can run before they "hit the wall." A phrase used to describe the body's way of saying "you probably should not go any farther!" Completing a marathon seems to be in large parts about finding a way to get over, around, or through that wall, but I guess I won't know that until the day of the run!
