A few months ago I signed up for the Providence Marathon which happens in early May. Registration for longer road races isn't cheap, but luckily it didn't break the bank, and at the same time it was enough that I shouldn't back out. Although after record-breaking snowfall this winter, it has been pretty hard to get out and train. This weekend I did my longest run yet of 21 miles, afterwards felt like I was going to die, and then celebrated by getting a veggie cheese burger and fries at Tasty Burger. It was quite a cold and snowy day, but at least there was still a lot of snow on the ground for whenever I was thirsty. Did I just admit that? Desperate times...
