Boston Marathon 2014 - Jessica Sowalsky's Marathon Blog

6 months to go…

Today is exactly six months until the Boston Marathon.  I went to the gym this morning and lifted weights, used the rower, and the standardized bike.  I have noticed since I started training for my half marathons that my ability to lift heavier weights is a lot easier and I have become more muscular. The more I push myself the better off I will be in April to be able to run faster and have the endurance to finish the 26.2 miles with a great pace and time.

All day I have been thinking about what race day will feel like on April 21st. Who will be there to support me? How will I feel emotionally while I run? What will be the most memorable moment for me during the race? But most of all, I am most grateful to my GENEROUS SUPPORTERS who have already helped me surpass the 25 PERCENT MARK of my fundraising goal in only three weeks!

Each day I think to myself how lucky I am to have this opportunity and to be a part of a wonderful team. November 23rd can’t come soon enough. That is the day I run with all of the first time runners of the DFMC team. I look forward to meeting new people and learning more about DFMC.
