It’s official — I’ve been accepted to run the 2010 New York City Half-Marathon on March 21st. Gulp. Time to lace up those shoes and begin training! Just one problem- there’s a serious risk I might not make it to the finish line. I can’t seem to make it past 2 miles, and at the speed I run, I may as well be walking.
Fortunately, I have ABC weather girl, Heidi Jones, on the case. This running superstar, who miraculously convinced me to enter the race, has also agreed to help train me for what could be my biggest failure yet. As Fredrick Smith said, “Fear of failure must never be a reason not to try something.” Well this definitely qualifies as something new.
Please email me any running tips or suggestions. At this point, there’s very little I won’t try to get this very out of shape body into a 13.1 mile running machine.
