it's been a while

I haven't posted here in a while. Guess I'm just not a talkative sort! :-)

But I do have some running-related news... I've registered, as part of a 6-person team, to run in the 100-on-100 Heart of Vermont relay on August 15th. This race starts at Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT and travels 100 miles southward on scenic Route 100, ending at Okemo Mountain Resort in Ludlow, VT. The course is broken down into 18 legs, and runners 1-6 each run 3 legs over the course of the day. Total mileage per runner is somewhere between 15 and 18 miles. only other thing to note: HILLS GALORE! www.100on100.org

I'm running the race with 5 runners I know from the Runners World Online masters forum - having met 3 of them in person already - and we're running in memory of Cody, my friends Mickey and Diane's little boy, who passed away of Neuroblastoma in March at age 6. We'll also be fundraising for neuroblastoma research. I'll be fundraising for this race in conjunction with my NYC Marathon fundraising, which is also for neuroblastoma research.

I've been feeling a little directionless lately with regards to my running, so spent a little time this morning at the chalkboard (I have an old schoolhouse one on my hallway wall) mapping out my running for the next few months. Just a consistent 4 days per week, slowly increasing the weekly mileage. Need a better base than I have currently! Anyways, it was good to see a plan up on the wall.

I've got 3 months of consistency and base-building before marathon training season starts on 1 July.
