On October 3rd, I’ll be participating in the Maine Marathon.

Well, I’ll be participating if I get my act together! The marathon is 9 weeks away, and I’ve been putting in about half the distance I need to. This week, I kicked it up a notch with a hot & humid 8-miler down Jamaica Way. It’ll take an agressive schedule of adding 2 miles per week to get me where I need to be (and still have room to taper).

It’ll be impossible to top the excitement of doing the Boston Marathon earlier this year, so instead I’m looking to vastly improve my barefoot (vibram’d) running pace.

And now that I’ve posted this, I need you to hold me to it ;-)
