Alright, Let’s Get This BQ Training Party Started!!!

Saturday, April 1st began my first workout with my coach! I’ll talk more about my coach and why I decided to go that route in another post, but for now, the BQ train has begun its 6 month voyage to ST. GEORGE MARATHON!!!

I laced up my special edition Boston Marathon Newton Fates and joined a friend for an early 8 miler on Saturday. I’d had these shoes in my closet for over year–telling myself then that I’d only bring them out when I decided to train for a Boston Qualifier. A year ago, I *never* thought I’d attempt it. I seriously can’t believe that I’m signed up to actually try for it!

Eye on the Prize


I hope you join me on this crazy, new journey!! I’ll be documenting my workouts and commitment to healthier eating (OMG) here and hope that having this blog/outlet helps with accountability.

  1. I just signed up for St. George today! I was going to run a marathon this spring, but after an injury, I’m committed to a fall one instead. Can’t wait to follow your training and maybe I’ll see you out there!

  2. I just fastened my 5-point harness. I’m READY FOR THIS TRAIN TO LEAVE THE STATION!!! And I am very intrigued to hear about your coach. With or without one, I KNOW you will BQ. Such exciting stuff!!! xoxoxoxo

  3. I found your blog on Suzy’s. I love that you got Boston edition shoes and planned to bring them out specifically to train for your BQ marathon. I actually just got a pair of shoes (different ones) in a Boston color/theme and am now considering this same idea…
