This is the third long run of the month in my training for the Ellerbe marathon in March, a race that I hope to use to qualify for the Boston marathon this year. The run went surprisingly well after 2 days of practically starving myself during a 2 day exam for the medical boards. Had I been my own client, I would have questioned the value in the decisions I made, but unfortunately I don't always take my own advice. Do as I say, not as a I do! Although, hopefully the results will speak for themselves. I guess we'll know in 2 months when I run Ellerbe.
