A half marathon, am I crazy?
Friday, February 29, 2008
Ok, I may be crazy, but I am going to prepare for a half marathon in October! I got this email from Worldvision about teams of runners preparing and running a marathon in order to raise money for Aids orphans in Africa and I thought, why can't I do that. Ok, I weight 260 lbs and I hate to run, but I have heard lots of stories about people doing a couch to 5K or couch to half marathon before and I decided to try. If I don't try I will always wonder if I could have done it. I am going to ask some friends and family members to try to run with me. Even if they can't go to Chicago where the race I want to run is going to be, they can run in local races or just work along with me to get into shape. I am going to make a web page about my journey and ask for donations. When I get everything set up I will post a blog with a link to the webpage for anyone who wants to support me on my journey. I may not run during the the marathon, I may be walking the whole way but I am going to try. Wish me luck!
