13 weeks to go and still out of shape

Filed under: Uncategorized — workaholicrunner @ 1:19 am

My goal for the Chicago marathon in 13 weeks is to run it between 4:45 and 5:00.  I did a 13 mile training run last Saturday and it took me over 2.5 hours in the summer heat.  I have 13 weeks to improve on that to reach my goal.

I have an unusual schedule for the Chicago marathon.  Three weeks before the Chicago marathon, I entered the Air Force marathon in Dayton, Ohio.  I will attempt one of my 20 mile long runs during the Air force marathon.  I might drop off after mile 20 and see how I am doing.  I’ve never done this before but I really appreciate the well supported course at Wright Patterson Air Force base in Dayton.



  1. cooler plus adrenalin rush of being in a race … doable yung target time. 🙂
