The Running Goober Recap: February/March

So it's been about a month and a half since I last blogged, which is crazy! I even got behind on reading the blogs I follow (I am finally caught up on that). I thought I'd give you a rundown of what's been going on here recently.

1. Marine Corps Marathon Lottery- On March 13 I entered the Marine Corps Marathon Lottery. I'll find out on Wednesday if I got in or not. The anticipation is killing me! My cousin also applied and it would be his first marathon. It would be so awesome if we both got in!

2. Training- I began adding speed work into my training once a week for the past month in preparation for some time based goals I have on my agenda for the spring. This past Saturday I ran my 10K PR race and it was incredible. More on that in tomorrow's race recap. My ultimate goal for the spring is to run under 2 hours at my spring half marathon in May. I realized that the race is less than 6 weeks away! I'll be increasing my long run mileage between now and then to properly prepare.

3. Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend 2016!!- Back in February my in-laws booked our DVC rooms for Marathon Weekend. There are going to be at least 8 of my husband's family members there with a possibility of as many as 12 depending on people's work schedules. It should be a lot of fun to have everyone running in all of the different races that the weekend offers. I am so incredibly excited to go to Marathon weekend for a third year in a row. I'm not sure what race/races I'm going to run, but I definitely want to run the marathon again.

What's new with you?

That's all for now!


  1. I'm crossing my fingers for you that you get into Marine Corps! So glad you will be coming back to Disney for Marathon weekend 2016!

    1. Thanks, I appreciate it! Do you know if you guys will be back for marathon weekend?

  2. Hopefully you'll get into Marine Corps!
