Marathon - serious this time
Thursday, March 15, 2012
In January, I wrote about a marathon that I had signed up for and never trained. At that point, I had 6 weeks to go before the race, and was really wanting to run it. In the end, I decided to play it safe and not run it.
But, as I said, 5 years ago, I set a goal for myself to run a marathon in 2012. Coincidentally, my fiance was talked into running a marathon in October with his two brothers, something I'm pretty sure I'd never be able to convince him to do. So we're all signed up for the Marine Corps Marathon.
The MCM sold out in record time - under three hours! To gain entry, we're fund raising for Fisher House, a not-for-profit organization that aids military families during unexpected hospitalization. I think that having the support of not only my fiance during training, but also the organization and all those who donate to this cause - knowing they supported me to get there - will really help keep the momentum up. At least for now it is!
