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.
