Two years ago, I had really big goals for Pocono Marathon. I wanted to run sub 3:20 when my PR was only 3:53. I knew I had a big PR in me, but that big?! I was young, stupid and naive! Sub 3:20 is a big goal of mine, but like many things, marathoning takes time. It's not something you can keep doing every weekend to get a better time! Pocono marathon was hard for me, the training went well but the course did not. Those hills. Those downhills, were killer! My thighs and calves were not prepared, I seriously considered dropping out but I wanted to finish. It wasn't going the way I wanted to go- but I still managed to PR'ed. 3:46 & change. My body had never been that beaten up from a race before. I figured I would just go down in distance and race a couple halfs-but was somehow persuaded to do Philly Marathon 2016.
