100 Days to Boston

Hard to believe.  It's not 100 days to the Boston Marathon; it's actually 101.  Last year I did a blogger photo challenge for the thirty days leading up to Boston.  There still may be one in the works based on interest.  I had a lot of fun posting those to my social media outlets.

While I still may run the #photochallenge, I wanted to do something a bit different this year.  Aside from
logging all my runs into Training Peaks (for my coach,) and DailyMile, I thought it would interesting to post a kaleidoscope if you will of each training session for the 100 days leading up to Boston.  As if I'm not accountable enough already to myself and my coach, I am now accountable to the blogosphere.  For my non-running friends, this provides a Boston voyeur experience without all the aches, pains, weight loss, and blisters.

Hard to predict what each square will bring as far as actual.  There will be the occasional rest day (although there are few of those,) and some cross-training.  For the math majors in the audience, there are exactly 100 squares...you get the idea.

Put another way, instead of obsessing over Boston over 365 days, this boils it down to the real work leading up to race day.  That's not entirely true as I have a decent base of work heading into the 100 day countdown.  I'll post to most of my social media outlets; Instagram , Twitter, and Facebook starting on Friday, January 10, 2014.  Bring it on!
