Well, here I am. Smack dab in the middle of week 12. I can't believe I only have another 6 weeks to go!
Training has gone good this week. Monday I ran 4.23 miles, Tuesday I ran 8.4 miles and tonight I am running 5.15 miles. I will run 12 miles on Friday morning, 3-4 miles on Saturday and 6 miles on Sunday. Since I will be out of town at the lake, my routes will be hilly but much nicer than running in the city.
I did find out that I need to have a passport or EDL (enhanced drivers license) to pick up my packet for the marathon. Since we cross the boarder into Canada, we have to abide by the new laws. So today I am heading out to have my passport picture taken and will mail out the application. I have a passport but I never updated it after I got married. To renew the passport, the cost is $75. an EDL is $45. It only makes sense to renew the passport since it will be valid for many years. The processing is time is 4-6 weeks, so I only hope it arrives in time. I am assuming it will. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
