Day 3 and Still Going

Just a quick update…

I am completely out of shape.  I used to run 5 – 10 miles with no problem, but that was half a lifetime ago in college.  I am building toward running the entire mile, but for now it is run/walk for the mile.  Each day I have been able to increase my running distance by .1 of a mile.  But, lot’s of pre-marathon training left to do.  When I reach the mile, I will be sure to let you know 🙂

So, why the marathon?  Because running for the sake of running doesn’t really motivate me because I’m not a runner.  But, throw in the element of competition, the chance to bring back some youth, the chance to feel better, the understanding that it’s going to take a lot of discipline, and that discipline is going to spill over into the rest of my life… now that is exhilerating.

There are other reasons that I’ll get into a bit later, but for now, this is good.

See you again at the 1 mile marker!
