10 March 2010 – Marathon season is fast approaching and I have been training for about 6 weeks. Training is going well and I have been running strong. One thing that I am trying this time around is to do some of my long training runs with a running group. Team Ortho is providing this service to members who are running the Minneapolis Marathon in June. I did one run with them a few weeks back and hope to do another one with them soon. The advantage of doing this is to help me stick to a consistent pace! I have kicked up the pace of my running with the hopes of being able to qualify for Boston next year. The big thing is to remain injury free during the training time.
