I'm a 56 year-old retiree, who found a new passion in running only a few years ago. I hope I can continue to nurture that passion, even if it means changing the way I do it. I've been married for 31 years to a wonderful man who gave me three amazing step-children and seven grandchildren.

6 days until your marathon!!! How are you feeling???

I did 16 this weekend, but I don't feel so hot today. My hips are sore, which is new for me. A NEW part of my body hurts...imagine that.

Wishing you all the best!

Best,

Amy

Hi Sue,

I get a blister, too, in the same darn spot, no matter what shoe I wear. I guess I should try glide and see if it helps. I was also told to try thicker socks, I did and at mile 6 it felt like my feet were being suffocated!!!! It seems that if I change my socks, I need to also change my shoes.

I am training for the LA Marathon in March. I still have quite a few months to go emoticon I would love to do a 1/2 marathon before March, but they are so expensive. $90-150 and I need to save that money for shoes and new insoles before March. It seems that races in Southern California are more expensive….

The one I am REALLY tempted to run is the Lost Dutchman 1/2 Marathon in Feb at the Superstition mountains, AZ. It was my fist 10K last year and for sentimental sake, I'd like to run it every year. It's only $80 and $85 for the marathon…twice as much fun for only $5 more, lol!

I'm so impressed with your determination! Keep up the awesome work!

My uncle lives in Florida, maybe I can plan a visit out there and we can run a 1/2 together!

Best,

Amy
