Week in Review -Dopey and Thanksgiving

Training for a mammoth challenge like Dopey during the holidays is a challenge.  The time commitment to Dopey training is significant and when you combine the training with the added time commitment of holiday events and you start to wonder where all the hours in your day ran off to.  It was that way for me this week.  At least, I didn't have a super long Dopey training run scheduled.  Otherwise there was not way I'd be able to get it all done.

This week in review:

Monday: 5 miles

Tuesday: 7.1 miles

Wednesday: 10 miles

Thursday: 8 miles

Friday: REST DAY

Saturday: 9 miles

Sunday: 7 miles

Weekly Total: 46.1 miles

In a week that's focused on gratitude I'm thankful for you, the reader and the ability to keep running all these miles.  We're under 40 days to go until the start of Dopey and I can't believe it's almost here!

How was your Thanksgiving?

Rochester Half Marathon -Race Recap

This past weekend, I participated in the Rochester Half Marathon.  This is Fleet Feet's premiere event of the season and it encompasses the 5K and Kids Marathon on Saturday and the Half and Full Marathons on Sunday.  It is also the final leg in the four seasons challenge...thank god that's done!

We left a little late on Saturday but were able to get to packet pickup with about half an hour to spare.  I wish it ran a little later than 4:00PM for those out of town.  I picked up my bib and my race shirt and we headed to our hotel for the night.  I did chuckle at this sign outside of the expo:

The taper crazy is real, folks!
Before I knew it, race time was here! The race starts at Maplewood Park on the north side of Rochester and finishes at Frontier Field.  Parking is at the finish line and there are shuttles to the start.  The school bus shuttles were well-run and plentiful.
