Ryan Hall's Boston Marathon workout

Jason Kovacs forwarded this video to me on Wednesday. I became aware of Ryan Hall and his testimony when I signed up for the Marine Corps marathon last year in D.C. and subscribed to Runner's World. Ryan was was on the cover of my first issue and his story was very inspiring. This video of his workout for the Boston Marathon is great! Marathon workout video.

It motivates me to get out there and train for the 2009 Marine Corps Marathon. I may slow the 8 mile training runs down from 38 minutes to 88 minutes. Just at first though... I'll be running with my brother-in-law Andy and his 15 year old son Drew again this year. Drew is planning to win his age group and break whatever records there may be for that group. Lots of miles ahead but looking forward to raising money for Love Without Boundaries and the China orphan care work they are doing!
