I am writing tonight to announce my decision to run in the Twin Cities Marathon in 2009. As I write this, I cannot believe the words that I am typing. That is because I am not much of a runner. I have not run an organized race since track in the 4th grade. Even then, distance wasn’t my strength. My legs still ache from my 5 mile run on Sunday.
However, I am inspired. I am inspired by the support and encouragement coming from Polly. I am inspired by her recent accomplishment. I am inspired by my friends who are going to run with me (my brother is still a hold out). And I am inspired to AIM HIGH.
It will be a long journey, but I figure if I commit now, I give myself the best chance for success. If I make a public commitment, I will have a tangible goal. If I invite others in, I will get the best advice from those who have experienced it. Therefore, I invite you to share your experiences here or directly with me. I will periodically post updates to my training, and hopefully a picture of me crossing the finish line in 2009.
