Couch To Marathon

Last week I got some GREAT news….

Doc cleared me for all activity now! Woot! After nearly eleven weeks on restriction after abdominal surgery, I can start exercising again!

And let me tell you, I’m ECSTATIC.

Remember way back when I realized I was going to have major surgery I threw out the challenge to join me in training for a marathon once I recovered?

Well, now that I’ve received the good-to-go from my doc, I’m ready to jump into the Couch to Marathon.

I haven’t picked out a race yet, but I’m shooting for something in October.

Sure, I’ve always been athletic, sprinkling in a few half-marathons over the years, but a full marathon? 

As in 26.2 miles


But you wanna know something? I say, “BRING IT ON!”

If your’e interested in joining me on this adventure, just drop me an email and we’ll chat: LynnRush (at)


Anyone ever try something that was super scary, but for some reason you just had to do it? To push yourself outside of your comfort zone? Anyone ever run a marathon before? Any tips to send my way?
