marathon training (week seventeen)

remember when i was training for that marathon and was a week away and freaking out? me too.

let the countdown begin friends. five days to go...

btw...i just want to go on record and say that i am super duper proud of emily lynn gould for training for her second half-marathon and everyone should wish her awesome-good luck!

one thing i learned/re-learned this week in regards to running: there is always a bigger issue in this world for me to worry about than some small little problem i am having. too many times (way too many times) i stress over something or freak out about something in my life and i completely forget about everyone else in this world. trust can probably be a lot worse! i realized this on a run...

week seventeen numbers:

starting weight: 183

monday - rest
tuesday - rest
wednesday - 4 miles / 33:59 (8:30)

  1. It seems you've done very well with your training. Congratulations! Good luck with the marathon, Tony! PS I like the quote at the end.

    Emily - Good luck to you at the half marathon and congratulations on completing your training!

    You both seem like a great couple determined to do great things! Keep it up!

  2. I love you both, Emily and Tony! Dad and I are very proud of you. Wish we could be there to cheer you on. I hope someone will be taking video!
