One Month, Two Marathons, No Toenails?

May 4 - Pittsburgh

A while back I decided I wanted to run my second marathon somewhere I love.  Hello Pittsburgh, PA.  I registered the day it opened and have now booked flights, Pirates tickets and a hotel next to the Consol arena.  We prioritized hockey and playoffs ahead of distance to start/finish line.  So come on Pens!

June 1 - Calgary

Then I got over excited (again) and registered for the Calgary Marathon.  I had always intended to run in this race but had been leaning towards the Half.  It will be our fourth year in the event (previous 10k, Half & Half) and it really is one of my favourites.  Far be it for me to pass up the opportunity to do something mental.

So 2014 is going to be all about the marathon.  I have registered for the Hypothermic Half in February as part of training.  I have one other crazy plan, maybe, for the summer but that can wait until this one is in the books!

My training plan will be focused on Pittsburgh, then 2 weeks of reverse taper followed by 2 weeks of taper before Calgary.  It seems a big bit crazy and is nothing short of thrilling.
