This morning we met at Key Biscayne for our first group training session. We call ourselves “Team Tiffany”, after the commemorative Tiffany necklace we’ll receive once we cross the finish line…better than any medal in my opinion! We will meet every Saturday morning at 7 a.m., rain or shine, cause as with war; marathons don’t stop for a little drizzle…. We will start training earlier as we increase miles and the weather gets warmer.

Today was all about meeting the team and assessing our abilities. Coach Laine had us run for 30 minutes - at our own pace…..but I went in with a competitive spirit and injured myself! A runner’s worst nightmare – SHIN SPLINTS!!! Ouch! The overall run was fairly easy considering that I hadn’t run since the Corporate Run….I had to take a break….I had shin splints for a week after that!!!
