UPDATE! This Saturday, I spent the weekend in Boston to attend my first-even, Dana Farber Marathon Challenge group training run! It was SUCH a treat.
The course took us along many miles of the actual Marathon route, including..(dum, du, dum, dummm) Heartbreak Hill!! I ran 17 miles in around 2 hours and 45 minutes and felt great the whole time. Of course, we were blessed with amazing weather and there were DFMC volunteers along the way pumping Gatorade, Fig Newtons and Peanut M&Ms into our systems, but STILL, what a day!!
Must return ASAP! Such an awesome experience and so fun to finally meet the rest of my fellow teammates. I can’t tell you how cool it was to be part of this amazing group of people who are all so dedicate to this cause. I really can’t imagine running this Marathon without their support, your support and without my fundraising goal in the back of my mind. It makes it all worth it.
