Who would have thought that trying to wake up at 5:45 after waking up every day at 11 for two weeks would be so difficult? For the first few miles of my treadmill run I ran with my eyes closed because they were just that tired, no picture obviously because how do you take a picture with your eyes closed?
I played a very mean trick on myself. Two weeks ago I finished off one of my favorite candy bars that a student gave to me at work. I was so excited when I got to school because the wrapper was still on my desk and looked as though there was some left, I forgot I finished it all and there wasn’t even a crumb left. Devastating.
Today we are talking about Amy Hastings (if you missed the first post about Desiree Davila and the Olympic trials click HERE to read it). We are now ELEVEN days away from the trials held in Houston and from the comments of the last post about this, some of you will BE THERE. I expect you to take a trillion pictures and stalk down the athletes like I would if I were there:)
You know…Amy can run a marathon in 2:27:03…..no big deal;) Not only did she run that incredible time in the LA Marathon but that was her marathon DEBUT, her first marathon ever and the third fastest American debut ever.
While Amy was in college training in Flagstaff, Arizona her biggest dream was to train with Deena Kastor. After a tough year she had to make a decision between stopping running and trying something new. She decided to call Mammoth’s head coach and train with some of the best people in the world, including Deena.
After training with the Mammoth team for a little over a year she placed THIRD in the 1/2 Marathon Championship in 2010 with a time of 1:11:19.
And regarding her training for the marathon:
Who knows….maybe Amy will be representing the USA at the Olympics?!
Anyone eaten something chocolate lately that was delicious?
What were your last miles…..good miles or bad miles?
-Good but very very tired miles.
Anyone else tired today?
