I received a couple of copies of the newest issue of Marathon & Beyond in the mail today. Inside is the article I wrote for them on my first marathon experience at the Mt. Desert Island Marathon back in 2005. If you're not familiar with the magazine, a typical issue is full of stories from top notch athletes as well as average Joes like me who have a unique story to tell about their marathon and ultramarathon experiences. There are also articles from top doctors and experts on a variety of running related issues, such as training to nutrition. It has entertained and informed for years, and I'm honored they decided my little story was worthy of their great publication. If you have access to the magazine, check out my article on pg. 105.
On the running front, not much to write about (at least not yet). Very hot day today that got into the 90s, and combined with a busy day getting my classroom ready for the first day of school next week, I opted not to run. Just as well, as I've been feeling a little banged up lately and could use the rest. Tomorrow I'll get in a few miles, and on Saturday, I should have a lot more to write about.
