Game On. Marathon Training Starts Now.

Just 20 weeks until 26.2 miles for Team USO.  It's officially time to stop messing around and ramp up the training. The long runs shouldn't be too hard on the weekends (except maybe some football Saturdays), but I'm definitely not looking forward to those 10-milers on Wednesdays...ooh, that's gonna hurt at either 6:00am or 7:00pm.

My training plan has me completing three 20-milers before marathon day, ideally before the the Army Ten Miler, as that's coming up a few weeks before the Marine Corps Marathon.
I'd like to set a new 10 miler PR (beating 68 minutes). Should be easy after the training schedule I'm anticipating.
