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)

Help me raise $5,000 to help care for people with cancer!
Good luck with the marathan! Just made a donation to the cause. I’m impressed that you’re devoting that much time to training with all the other stuff you have going on. Good for you!
Thank you SOOOOO MUCH! You Rock!
