Walk It Out

I'm very excited. I have begun my first week of training for the marathon. I am not sure what goal I will be able to reach. When I was younger and healthier, I could always whip my body into good shape in a matter of 4 - 5 weeks. As I have gotten older and experienced some considerable health challenges, I have realized that I can no longer take that ability for granted.

I would love, love, love to run the full marathon. But I don't want to set my sights that high and find myself discouraged to the point of giving up, so I am going into this with the intention of completing the half marathon as a walker - which will still be a considerable achievement for me.

You guessed it! I'm training with TNT to participate in the Rock 'n' Roll marathon at the end of May. I will be posting about my progress on all of my blogs.

Cut and paste, baby...

My other internet alias...it's still BR, but I post to my business blog from another account. Forgot I was logged in under the other identity until it popped up with the other name.

I'm impressed. My treadmill watching judge mathis for 60 minutes is my greatest running ambition :o)
