I am now almost in month 2 of my marathon training. I can’t believe I am going to run a marathon! So far, so good. My long run is at 10 miles right now and will be bumped up to 12 in less than 2 weeks. The furthest I have ever run is a half marathon, so I will soon be coming up on a new PDR (personal distance record). I have been working hard to ensure that I am getting the proper amount of calories and nutrition in my diet. This stage is fairly easy as my mileage is nothing longer than I have done before. I am trying to really listen to my hunger cues, though long run days are still tough as I have no appetite. I have been really concentrating on smaller meals, closer together on those days. Since I don’t ever really seem to be hungry on those days, I just try to eat something with 200 – 400 calories every 2-3 hours. I got some new products to try out for my long runs, so I will make sure to update and review those soon.


I am toying with the idea of going vegetarian for Lent. I have become increasingly concerned about where our food comes from since watching Food, Inc and reading more & more about the whole process. I don’t eat a diet heavy in meats right now, and I do enjoy lots of vegetarian meals, but is it something I want to do. And, if I do decide to go ahead & do it, am I doing it for the right reasons. Last year I gave up wine for Lent. That was hard. I have given up chocolate and sweets/desserts in the past, too. Still lots to think about. I also need to consider my nutrition needs while marathon training.
