The Canby Dahlia Marathon

Canby Dahlia Half MarathonMonday I registered for a second half marathon, The Canby Dahlia Marathon. It is located in Canby, Oregon and this means I will be running through the famous Dahlia flower gardens. Granted, I have never run in a marathon before… but this marathon is going to be the most beautiful marathon I have ever run in. It takes place in August.

So, now I have my three marathons scheduled for this year. The Eugene Half Marathon, the Canby Dahlia Half Marathon, and then the marathon I am training for… the full Seattle Marathon in December!! I am starting to get excited. The Eugene Half Marathon is only 6 weeks away… and I started training last September. It’s almost here! AAAAAHHHHH!!!

In other marathon training news, today I ran my fastest 4.07 miles… I ran it in 35 minutes and 57 seconds. I wish I had a 4 mile route because then it would be easier to calculate my mile times.

    1. I am unsure what the best preventative is for that for longer runs… but I started using vaseline this week and band-aids. So far so good.
