week 15 and *I DID IT!*

Prices for the Eugene Marathon went up February 1 – so I signed up on January 31!!!  I fought the urge of “do I really have the time to commit to running a solid marathon?!” and went with “Eugene looks amazing, I’ve always wanted to go, I am going to train my best, and enjoy it regardless!”  Of course my goal is a PR (under 3:25) and I’d LOVE to break 3:20.  But qualifying for Boston is always a goal.  I’d be qualifying for 2016 and I’ll be in a new age bracket by then :) so my QT is 3:40.

Week 15 recap – 36.9 miles
