Week 16 of 16
It's Houston Marathon race week and I did it! I completed my second marathon. You can read the full play-by-play here:
I may not have reached my goal I am proud I was able to finish. I am also proud of the way my training went, my half marathon PR at the Cape Cod Half and not one but TWO 5k PRs during marathon training. The marathon distance is no joke. I have not given up and my 7.2 mile walk only made me more determined. There will be another 3:30 marathon attempt in Run Jen Run’s future!
In the meantime, I will be resting and recovering for a good 3-4 weeks. Training for the Buffalo Half Marathon will begin March 7th. I’d love for you all to join me for 13.1 miles in my favorite city on May 29th! Use code BRSkiba05 for $5 off registration! More info here:

3 miles treadmill (24:00)
3 miles with Michele & daddo (~30:00)
Houston Marathon 26.2 miles (4:36:13)
G mileage disclaimer: None of the mileage reported with Georgie is straight, consistent running. We may run 1 mile in 9 or 10 minutes but in reality we probably covered a 2-3 mile distance with a mix of walking and running. I stop my watch every time we start walking.
