Do you realize it ladies? 160 days until the Dam Marathon. That means you all need to get started training if you haven't already. (Well, except our pregnant ladies of course, they can wait until after they deliver to begin their training programs.)
It's a new year, those who were moving have moved, I'm guessing no one else is pregnant or plans to become so in the next six months, so it's time to lace up the shoes and hit the road. If you need to start slow now's the time to start because 160 days translates to 23 weeks.
I'm suggesting that each of us enters at least one race between now and the relay so that you can get some race experience. As spring starts you'll find plenty of local 5K and other distance races in your area and if you need help finding a race please let me know and I'll hunt some down for you. If you need a personalized training program, let me know and I'll see what I can find.
This is going to be great!
