Since Mon, Oct 1, 2012 at 7:16 PM I’ve been training to run a marathon, well on March 16th I will be running the Rock & Roll Marathon in Washington D.C.. That’s 26.2 miles 2 weeks from today.
It had been quite a journey to get my body to this point. I have run:
- more than 40 times
- for a total distance of 214.06 miles (with two weeks to go)
- It has taken me more than 44 cumulative hours
- and I’ve burned more than 30,000 calories.
All that’s according to my Garmin Connect lifetime totals. Where I can track my running progress and see how I built up the distance over time.
Now, you may know that I like beer and that for the past year I’ve been building out my home brew operation with a Summer Ale, a Dunkel, an Imperial IPA and next up a Belgian Blonde.
Well the idea hit me to name the beer after the 26.2 moniker- and thus Marathon Blonde was born as a Belgian Blonde ale fit for any chalice.
