5 weeks to go!

Carl and I have 5 weeks tomorrow until it's marathon day! Training is going great so far..however the heat has been tough. Hopefully the weather will start to break.

2 weekends ago we had 16 miles on our training calendar and we decided a while back that we would sign up for The Brokemans half marathon in Dayton. The race was held on Saturday morning so we decided to go the night before and get a hotel..and a chance to get out of town for a date night! We picked up our packet downtown Dayton and had dinner at The Spaghetti Warehouse. Of course we ordered dessert too to share :-) The brownie sundae was amazing!

We went back to our hotel and got up early the next morning as the race started at 7:30. We got there just a few minutes before the start, which was fine b/c this race was a smaller race so we didn't have to navigate through a ton of people.
                                                         

The course was a straight line..one mile one way and one and a half mile the other way. We finished 13.1, took a small break and ran 3 more. This was our distance PR and it felt amazing to be able to run 16 miles! We took a change of clothes, as we were soaked, cleaned up and headed back to Columbus. 


Had to get a picture of Katie Cordova, the race director and her hubby ;-)They do such an awesome job with The Brokemans races! I recommend their events!
