Regular Schedule for Marathon Monday
You know what is hard? Any intense physical fitness. You know what is really hard? Doing it for many hours with incredible uncertainty after training for months and fundraising for the same. I have so much love and respect for all the thousands who run any marathon, and I have an even deeper of such for OUR RUNNERS running tomorrow for the Boston Marathon!
Stacy Doyle (Woburn), Sean Gilroy (CP), and Jenny Yerxa (Woburn) have been training for this incredible journey during the hardest training months you can find. The reason the Boston Marathon is so difficult is a combination of the terrain being so up and down (and tricky down for much of the first half to make you feel like it isn’t so hard after all before it REALLY GETS YA), while being at a time of year where training happens during the brutal winter months up here. You think running 20 miles on a Saturday sounds awful? Try it when it’s 20 degrees and snowed the night before. Good luck to all three of you. Anyone going to watch tomorrow, or just interested in following some Landos, find them on Facebook (I won’t post their links here since I don’t have their permission though I’m sure they wouldn’t mind). Give them a couple $$ for their last minute fundraising too!
If I missed somebody I am very sorry. We love you too! GOOD LUCK!!!
