Training Starts December 27th

Sorry I haven't been blogging, but luckily my partner has had lots to report! Thanks for holding down the fort, Laura!

I'm still not sure what 2010 has in store for me, runningwise, but, one thing is for sure. The Bavisela on May 2nd. I am very excited because Michael B will be here to run it with me and my good friend Klementina's birthday is that day and it will be her first half marathon. That should be exciting.

With this in mind, actual training starts on December 27. That gives me 18 weeks of Hot Hal Higdon training to look forward to. I will base training (loosely) on his intermediate plan which includes three 20-milers. It worked for my for Paris, so I'm going to stick with it.

I'm planning on a nice half-marathon three-peat on March 23 in Sezana, Slovenia, as well. Part of me (a big one) really wants to do Venice in October. The rest of me doesn't want to commit. Plus, that one fills up. Who knows if by the time I decide there will be any places left...I might have to leave it for the year after.

The most tempting marathon of the year remains Chicago, because my girls (Jewelz and Laura) are running it. But I'm broke. Sigh. Need to look closer to home this year.

Anyway, everyone else is starting to train again, I better too. Can't wait to get my camelbak out again and hit the trails!


  1. Yeah, well, CHICAGO - that's not a done deal just yet. I am still undecided. Of course, Ms Fool is all "LET'S DO IT, LET'S DO IT...." and I'm all "I'm not sure, I'm not sure...." We will see. In any case, you know how psyched I am that you are back on Hot Hal????? I think I'm gonna do it up with you (even if I'm not sure what marathon has my name all over it)

  2. Okay, Kari. You've talked me into Trieste. :)
