I'm here.Still.

Before my weekend of running started Saturday I got a rather unpleasant call informing me that a work colleague had been killed in an auto accident on Friday night. Stunned and sad for her surviving family, I spent my collective 22 miles of running this weekend in a meditative state. I also discovered a few more things about my on course nutrition that will hopefully help me prepare better for the 50K next month and to run stronger.

I've got a Pilates session tonight, a brief run after and then a day off tomorrow. I think my workouts this weekend are 3.5 - 4 hoursish each day. I need to do some route planning.

I am sorry to hear about your colleague. I am a vegetarian currently training for my first marathon next month. Any advice about dealing with the constant daily hunger I am experiencing?

Dina -- Sorry I missed your comment earlier! I realize now that you may have already run your marathon. I have a couple of questions for you: What/when are you eating now? Do you eat on your runs? Gels or actual food? Feel free to e-mail me and I can address this stuff there. Thanks for reading.
