Running the 2010 Houston Marathon


A few weeks ago i signed up for the 2010 Houston Marathon. I am training with the Houston Striders Running Club. Its a group of about 400 people from walkers, half marathoners, to Boston Qualifiers. We did time a 1 mile time trial August 4th to get everyone into there pace groups.

This is the second week of training. Last week we did three days of regular running at about 5 miles per day. This week we are running hills to build up stregnth and endurance. I did 3 miles of hills today.

Total miles so far this week is 16 miles. Only 156 more days till the marathon.
