Did 20 miles last Wednesday in L.A.- started at the L.A. Zoo down to my house in Hancock Pahk and then back up hill to the zoo. 20 miles in 3 hours, which theoretically puts me under 4 hours for 26.2. THEORETICALLY!!!!! I will say that the hills on that 20 mile run seemed (and I believe factually) are much tougher than Boston, so I felt like if I can do that specific 20 then I am “ready” for Boston. I wanted to have a long run that started mostly down hill like Boston does. Everyone says how the downhill- in Boston the first 5 miles are noticeably downhill- can reek havoc. However, my trainer has told me a way to combat that is to act as if you are about to sit down in a chair and let the moment do the work. Also always staying light on my feet. So far that has worked. That being said it was getting hot by the end of that 20 miles and I did feel for a second that I was running at an angle- like diagonal, if that makes any sense…mind trippin’ out- but I paid attention to that and thought “run tall” and corrected myself. I definitely finished strong because I started “booking’ it” as we used to say as kids, so I could make the 20 miles in 3 hours. And I did.

BUT! The ice bath after the 20 mile run was the most painful thing of this whole training period. (No, there aren’t any other photos of me in the tub…haha!!). I realized that the easier way to go is have a cool bath and then slowly start to put more and more ice in it so you don’t have to get shocked so much…really painful the way I did it. YIKES!!

I’m am so lucky to be able to train in warm L.A. but I got to do 10 miles today in Boston (gotta do 14 more tomorrow). My hometown- that connection like no other we all get from our hometowns. And that’s why I have to run Boston before any other marathon (if any other). My love and emotions for this city run as deep as the Charles River.
So now comes the time to tell you of another big reason why I am running the Boston Marathon: my mom has Alzheimer’s. And its not getting any better. And the only way to make it better for anyone is research. And research costs money. So for my mom and so so many family’s affected by this disease I ask you to donate whatever you can BECAUSE EVERY DOLLAR MATTERS to alz.org by going to http://www.crowdrise.com/joeymacsrun/fundraiser/joeymcintyre1 Again whatever you can give matters. AND!!! Just for fun!!! I will be randomly giving away (regardless of the size of the donation) 5 pairs of tickets to The Package Tour: This summer’s boy band bonanza across North America: New Kids on the Block/BoysllMen/98Degrees…and 10 signed tour T-shirts…and 10 signed NKOTB “10” CDs.That’s 25 prizes in all!! :)           But I know you’ll donate just because :) 
You have always supported me and I humbly ask you again to give what you can for an amazing organization- alz.org- by going to http://www.crowdrise.com/joeymacsrun/fundraiser/joeymcintyre1

Donnie Wahlberg weigh in on Justin Bieber’s rough few weeks

At the ripe old age of 19, Justin Bieber seems to be experiencing signs of old age – for a pop star, that is. And according to those who have experienced it before him, teen popstardom can be a rough road.
"Justin Bieber's making mistakes that everyone makes and he's probably trying things and exploring things that most kids his age explore, but the problem is he's got 50 paparazzi chasing him around when he does it," 43-year-old Donnie Wahlberg told the Associated Press this week. Wahlberg was only 14 when New Kids on the Block formed in the mid-1980s, the same age Bieber was when he was discovered by Usher and his manager Scooter Braun.
Wahlberg continued: "When we are 19 and 20, we think we can take on the world and we do forget that there is a lot of life left to live in front of us, and hopefully he'll get through these times and find his way into a long career and a healthy adulthood."
“These times” Wahlberg refers to are the series of unfortunate events (and press) to befall Bieber recently. This, of course, includes being caught with marijuana, showing up two hours late to a concert in London, fainting backstage and going to the hospital, attacking paparazzi, and posting an Instagram rant about refusing to go to rehab. Then, his ex-girlfriend dissed him on national television. Yup, it looks like “these times” are tough for Bieber, who has been relaxing while seeing the sights in Paris and skiing in the Swiss Alps recently.

Donnie Wahlberg, who was just 14 when New Kids on the Block debuted on the music scene in the late 1980s to wild fan craze, said he remembers the pressure and hard times that came with being a teen celebrity.
"Justin Bieber's making mistakes that everyone makes and he's probably trying things and exploring things that most kids his age explore, but the problem is he's got 50 paparazzi chasing him around when he does it," 43-year-old Wahlberg said. "When we are 19 and 20, we think we can take on the world and we do forget that there is a lot of life left to live in front of us, and hopefully he'll get through these times and find his way into a long career and a healthy adulthood."

Day 32

Got my bib number!!!! Yeah!! I am feeling good.
Did 16.5 last Monday in 2:30 (9 minute miles). Felt ok about it.
Did 10 miles this past Sunday in 1:20 with an even 40/40 split for 8 minute miles, so that was cool.
Taking it down a bit this week but then this next big run on Monday is for 18 miles! Gotta map that run out… I want to get more conscious of mile markers and what the course has- so a little more research than just getting out there and running.
All this is really a privilege. Good thing there’s only a month to go- I think my wife is getting tired of me skipping out the door :)
On a side note- Ryan Hall, the fastest time by an American at Boston (2011) had to drop out of race this year due to injury… Guess I’m gonna have to go win the whole thing now!

Day 21

Wow…guess I’ve been too busy training to blog…or don’t have the extra energy to do so. Waahhh!!! *whine*
Last Monday I did 15 miles. Most ever! And I did the last half faster. Did the last two mile in 16 minutes…finish strong!!!
As I’ve said, I’m trying to not heel strike and stay on the balls of my feet. Its working. I think my calfs are gonna be the size of Comm. Ave. by the time I get to Boston.
I continue to just do what my trainer has layed out for that day. Can’t say enough how amazing that is to have it all put out for you.
Tomorrow is an easy X-training day and then Monday I run 16.5 miles! Yikes!
Gotta start planning my route for that…Hmmm… Hollywood sign maybe…a little inspiration from the stars on the Blvd?? Maybe.
Thanks for reading oxox
