My experience with “distance” running includes walking a few 5K charity events with friends as well as a 3K humane society walk with my cocker spaniels on which my wife–not I–took the reins of the unruly pup.
I know nothing about running a marathon. I know nothing about the type of shoes, clothing, and other equipment I might need. I know nothing about how to train. I know nothing about my “pace” or “estimated finish time.” And yet for some reason, I think I want to subject myself to this torture. But what about my many questions:
- What if I pull my groin?
- What if I don’t finish?
- What if I get lost on the course?
- What if I accidentally drink Powerade instead of Gatorade?
I intend to answer these and other questions as well as chronicle my journey as I press on to the final destination:
The Glass City Marathon
April 25, 2010
Wait – April 25th? That’s only 126 days away! Eighteen weeks! Gotta go get started.
Wish me luck!
