17 Weeks and Counting

Today marks 17 weeks out from Boston Marathon Monday. My coach had me take off last week from running after finishing up my fall “racing” season. Fassino Design created a nice infographic showing my stats leading up to today.

I had a blessed season of running from September to last week. I avoided “racing” and just cruised in the last mile of each race rather than trying to leaving everything on the table with a finishing push (that didn’t work out well in June :-). That said, I dropped all my PRs by about 10%, primarily due to weight loss:

Now I’ll likely take a break from “racing” until the end of February when it will likely be time for a tune-up half marathon.
