Update: Running for Charity – St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Leave a comment

My training for running Rock and Roll Chicago Half Marathon to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been going really well! I’m happy that I’ve been able to get in more consistent running, even with all that we have going on (caring for Chase, illnesses, doctor appointments, vet appointments, work deadlines, etc.) lately.

When I was training for marathons I would view any training run that was half marathon or longer in distance as my long run. For now, while I my longest race distance is a half marathon, I’m viewing anything over 10K as a long run.

Here’s the status from my plan since my last training post
