Some Times Running Naked is Embarrassing

by abclarke

It is now official.  I am signed up for the New York Marathon, and have committed to raise at least $5,000 for Team Continuum (a really cool foundation that works to help care for current cancer patients, and does a lot of work at J’s hospital).

I’m going to post my training status here so people can see how I do.  And right off the bat, the answer is not good 😦 I injured my shoulder in the gym a week ago (bouncing a ball… when did I get old?), and couldn’t move my neck for about 4 days.  Net is my training fell off.   The good news is I feel better now, and was back at it starting last Thursday.  The first official group training run is tomorrow (6/12) and I’m looking forward to it.  I know I have a lot to learn about how to run.

June 4 – June 11

  • Miles ran: 8
  • Miles biked: 8 (really sad…)
  • Avg weight: 159.5
  • Avg body fat: 16.1% (crept up as activity decreased and those morning bagels caught up with me)
