On December 1st I run my first marathon. I have been training for over a year now. I currently have no knee, ankle, shin or muscle injuries. Last week I ran 18 miles without stopping to walk (although my time was surprisingly slow for me). By the end of October I hope to have run 26-ish miles at least once.
Today I am running 8 or 10 miles before I head to my graduate school for a few hours or work. Blogging has been difficult with me traveling (Washington DC), dealing with sick foster kids, running, studying, and not getting much sleep. However, my wife is happy… the foster kids are still alive, and I have not flunked out of grad school yet.
As many of you know, I have been raising money for Womenspace through my marathons. Thank you for everyone who has supported me thus far. And there is still time to give a few dollars to help by visiting my fundraising page.
Thank you and have a great day!
Next stop… December 1st, 2013… the Seattle Marathon.
