Musings on, Art, Skinning, Computers, and the True meaning of Life. (AKA The Lego Theory)

 2008DFPM

One year ago, I was writing almost the same blog as I am writing tonight.

Tomorrows morning I will be running my Second Detroit Freepress Marathon. This will not only be my second Detroit Marathon, it is my Second Marathon, this month. Two weeks ago I ran the Milwaukee Lakefront marathon, with a finish time of 3:49:56.  Tomorrow I will be running with a pace group for the first time, and shooting for another 3:50 marathon.  The only thing crazy about this race is the fac that I am trying doing it so soon after the last one.

My goal for this race is simple, run consistently. Two weeks ago in Wisconsin, I ran the first 24 miles at 8:30, and bonked in the last 2 miles. Losing almost 4 minutes in last mile. This I want to average 8:47 the entire race, and finish at almost the same time.

photoTonight with 10 hours to go, I am feeling pretty confident, I am in much better shape then I was last year. I will however admit that I have already decided that I wont be trying to do any more back to back marathons for quite awhile.

My only goal is to get some sleep, and digest my pre-race spaghetti dinner.
