These are five of the marathons Mrs. Fanelli has run since 2001.

All times within a one-minute range...

for 26.2 miles...

Incredible!

Looks like a little "speedwork" may be the recipe for breaking her out of the "rut" ;-)

Not that I know anything about running...

Yeah, perhaps... Being the presumptuous and arrogant person that I am, I have suggested that I could train her to break that magical 3:20 barrier. She politely smiles and reminds me that I've never raced farther than a 10k...

Seriously though, if she ever devoted all of her training to running, I know she could do it. As it is, she does all kinds of group-fitness classes and also swims, and usually just runs two days a week. So her 3:21 is pretty dang impressive to me!

Well...it's impressive to me too.

Just get her on the track and make her do some intervals. Find one of Lydiard's old books and leave it lying around...

Ask her just how "bad" she wants to break 3:20 ;-)
