Marathon training is a journey! A note on being thankful during training from our CIM Ambassador @vancesa: “Celebrating thankfulness this weekend…thankful for the support of family, friends and strangers as I go into the last week before CIM! Thankful for my strong little body to carry me through so much running these last few months. Thankful for those around me who keep me calm during my doubts and fears. Excited for what the next ten days will be like

@that_runner_girl_goes talks race goals for CIM, “CIM35 is fast approaching folks!? Run the Parkway was the perfect training run. My wishes were that those 20 miles would prove my training is paying off, and they came true!??‍♀️ After a successful long run my goals for Race Day are completely attainable!?I’m hoping to qualify for Boston at CIM, which will require a time of 3:35 or less, so running with the 3:32 pacer, Jen, was the best practice!? She even encouraged me to speed past her the last mile to end with an 8:02/mile average!!?? So, come Sunday, December 3rd, my goals are to drink water? at every aide station, eat 3️⃣ @clifbar chews (half the pack) every 45 mins?, talk with my pace group when I need to?, and crush that time of 3:35!?? I can’t wait to see everyone out there
