Eight short weeks until Dam to Dam
It's hard to believe that 6 months ago I ran a half marathon. Now Dam to Dam is just around the corner. It's a 20K run that goes from Saylorville Dam to downtown Des Moines. Running on the treadmill is SO different from running outside. This winter full of ice and snow on the sidewalks forced me inside to the treadmill. I've only run outside twice this spring and the thought of running 12.4 miles seems daunting at this point. Nevertheless, Monday I will begin my training and 8 weeks from today I will run Dam to Dam. It would be nice to run a faster pace than I did in the 1/2 marathon last fall but at this point I will be satisfied to finish!
