It’s hard to believe that the marathon is only 7 weeks away! This is when you start the “marathon preparation” and the training gets harder. Intervals and speed training will get more and more frequent, and the distances will get longer and longer.

The next couple of weeks are, for me, the hardest emotionally. This is when I start to wonder why in the world I signed up in the first place—when I just can’t wait for it all to be over. Doubts and thoughts of giving-up will cross my mind often. And I’ll be counting down the days until the taper weeks arrive.

Since giving up refined sugar months ago, I had to look around and research for better and healthier sugar substitutes that I could use in my smoothies, cereals and food recipes. I don’t like to use artificial sweeteners (please stay away from them), or the non-nutritive but yet “natural” kind such as stevia. (And as a vegan, honey is also out of the question.)

Now that the World Cup is over and our minds aren’t focused on soccer, I have to tell you about this new line of hair products that I was anxiously waiting to arrive. (I was waiting since February!).

Today we woke up in a not so pleasant way. The only day I have to sleep a little later, to recover from Sunday’s brutal long runs, we get woken-up by an earthquake! No matter how often these “tremors” happen here, it’s never fun, I tell you. You never get used to feeling the earth shake under you. Mother Nature is a beautiful, powerful and very scary thing!

It’s been a while since I updated you guys on my marathon training, huh? Truth is, after I got sick not only did I have to stall my training for a while, I also lacked the energy to do everything else.
