Joey McIntyre's Marathon Blog

Joey started a new blog http://joeyjoemcintyre.tumblr.com and he wrote his first post yesterday:

BLoGston Marathon: Day 1

So I have decided to train for the Boston Marathon. Notice I said train for the Boston Marathon, cuz I ain’t running it until I’m in Hopkington on April 15th this year. Lots of things can happen from now til then, so I’m gonna try to take it one day at a time. I have done a couple half marathons but nothing over 13 miles. I am thrilled to say I do have a trainer. Her name is Lizzie and she went to college with my wife and she is amazing. Every time I doubt myself, I get an email or a text from her with all this really interesting info on how to do this whole thing right, and that gives me a little more faith in the process. Lizzie just ran a 50 mile race. 50!!! So she knows what she is talking about! And I keep talking to God- keep asking him if I’m crazy trying to fit this into my schedule in this hectic but blessed time in my life… No lightning bolts yet, so I’m gonna keep on runnin’. And if you don’t mind, I’ll keep you posted. Cuz I think I can do this without you, but I’d rather not. -jm

Good luck Joey!!! :) Hope you're enjoying your taper time & you're ready to rock Boston!! :)

I live in SoCal & will run Boston as well. It's been my dream to run this race since '04. My hubby & I have been busy with our family so, I'm so thankful for the opportunity to be able to run the race this year! I hear the course support & marathon weekend is pretty epic & memorable. Remember..."courage to start & faith to finish!!" :) :)
