Boston 2010

Mom has decided to train for the Boston marathon 2010, She has given this a lot of thought and came to the conclusion that she can do this. If papa can get through 5 months of HELL, being in the hospital on a balloon pump not being able to move his legs, having to lay completely still, She can run a simple 26.2 miles, right? She will train for 6months (average is 4) she will need all 6 months to get there, but she will get there! She will be utilizing a 16 week schedule for training she will tweak it to accommodate 6 months as opposed to here goes nothing...side note...

Training begins on 9/13/09...

(allows time for papa to get home, as she will not be able to
devote the time needed till he is out of the hospital)
