Marathon training has begun

The weather has been quite pleasant here in Sioux Falls to kick off my first week of marathon training.

Yesterday, I went 8.25 miles at sub 7:10 pace, and it didn’t feel overly fast! Part of it might have something to do with the sunshine, or maybe it’s because my body is feeling good.

Either way, I’m currently pain free, feeling good and excited for a couple more days of above 30 degree temps.
