Well...sort of! In honor of the Vancouver Marathon happening this Sunday, which I'll be spectating at, I decided to bump up my mileage a bit and try to hit 26.2 miles for the week. Considering I've been keeping under 15 miles lately this might not be a wise decision but whatever!
I've actually never watched a marathon or big race before and I'm kind of really really excited, mostly because I'm not running it! I always looked on the sidelines with jealousy at the people cheering, sipping coffee, or having a nice breakfast at a cafe, all while I huff and puff by just dreaming of my post race treat. It was actually by sheer coincidence that me and my girlfriends will be in Vancouver for marathon weekend and I was pretty stoked when I put two and two together. We scored a hotel pretty close to the finish line so we hope to see the first place finishers fly into the finish line Sunday morning.
|Quick, follow me before I stop actually using it :)|
Monday - 8 miles <---spoiler: already did this!
Tuesday - 3 miles
Wednesday - 6 miles
Thursday - 6 miles
Friday - 3.2 miles
Total = 26.2!
In other semi marathon news I actually have a bet going with my traveling buddy, Sonia,...she thinks after spectating the Vancouver Marathon I'm going to want to sign up for another marathon ASAP, I think she is crazy...we have $20 bucks lying on it, I'll make sure to report who wins.
QUESTION: Anyone out there running Vancouver? Any advice for spectating at a marathon?
