I'm that blogger

Day 782 - February 21, 2011

I'm turning into that running blogger who never actually writes anything anymore. I've kept the streak going and I'm having a better start to 2011 than I did in 2010. I just checked and I'm 44 miles ahead of last year at this time.

But, I'm probably behind on my marathon training for May and I need to get it in gear. With the new Boston registration process, I need to have a good race and try and lower my qualification time if I want to have any chance of getting in. For the record, I applaud the BAA for changing the process and making it all about the times. I've always felt that Boston should be for the fastest marathoners, and not for the fastest registers. This will sound very unPC, but if they'd get rid of the fund raisers who don't have to meet the qualifying standards, I'd be even happier. There are plenty of other marathons out there for people who want to run a marathon or raise some money.

Back to the original topic...I will try and do a better job of updating here, but if you really want to see how my training is going, check out my profile at the Dailymile. It is a great site for logging your workouts. If you are already a member there, send me a friend request and if you aren't, you should consider joining. We all need another social media site to follow - right?!?!

/agree on the Boston registration thing. I'm so slow I'll never qualify but for that type of race, make it more competitive on a running basis, not on a click faster basis.
