With just a little over 5 weeks of training to go, I am very excited about running the Towpath Trail marathon on October 8. Just finished a four-mile lunch run this afternoon. Our offices are located about a tenth of a mile from the Towpath Trail in Valleyview which makes training rather convenient. This weekend, I will be ramping up to an 18 mile run on Saturday. I can hardly wait. I have noticed over the years the almost meditative state that I get into on my long runs. I know it sounds crazy but I really get lost in it out there.
