PHILADELHIA MARATHON 2009



It's official, I have registered for the Philadelphia Marathon. I know I have said I am going to run it again this year, but now I am registered!

I am looking forward to getting my time down, and I am even looking forward to the training.

While everything was new and exciting last year, I have a better idea of what to expect (especially after 21-22 miles)!

I am going to follow the same basic plan as last year, with a few modifications. I'll post my plan up here in July.

One thing I am going to do, is continue to hit the hills. I truly believe that running on the trails, with the Trailgroup has really helped me conquer running up and down hill. I was never good at them, dreaded a course with them, and know I look to them as a point during a race where I could pick off a runner or 2.

So there you have it, look out Philly, only 144 days, and I'm coming to kick some asphalt again!
(hopefully it is asphalt, and not ice like last year!)

That is so awesome that you have registered for the Philadelphia Marathon this year. I am psyched for you. As a matter of fact, I am thinking of going there to do the spectating. Shhheesh, tomorrow is July already. That is only four months away. Get busy, dude !

Congratulations! Registering is part of the battle. Look forward to seeing your training plan. I am contemplating a fall marathon, so am looking for good plans (I know, I should have one by now!).

I'm planning on being there for the HM. We'll have to set a meeting place this year. I promise I'll show up this time. ;)

Good stuff.

By the way, is Flyers 26 a Brian Propp tribute?

That's great! You'll also have an advantage this year because you 1) already have a marathon under your belt and 2) you already know the course.
