3 miles down, 457 to go

The Chicago Marathon, which is on October 12th, is only 18 weeks away. This means that my Chicago Marathon training program officially started yesterday. I ran 3 miles at a pretty good pace of 7:45. This is the pace that I would like to run everything at. Although, I am not sure how realistic this is, but I am going to give it the old college try! If you see me hobbling around I really DID give it the college try.

The rather depressing news is that I am woefully out of shape. I wasn’t so much tired while running as I am sore the day after. I mean, SORE after only THREE miles?? Wowza..... I am sure that will pass with time and I will get back to kicking ass and taking names. I had better, since I have already put down my $120 or whatever to run the race!!
