A little more than a year before I moved to The District I became interested in running. I was horrible at it; I was out of shape and had no idea what I was doing. Now, two years after moving, I’m almost a pro! I’ve met and become friends with so many active people who love to run just as much as I do. They’ve encouraged me, guided me and taught me so much.
My races started small, a 5k here or a 10k there but in March 2010, I was encouraged to sign up for a half marathon. With March and the half marathon now behind me it’s time to move forward to my goal of training for and completing a full marathon.
On April 9, 2010 I committed to running a full marathon by signing up for the Marine Corp Marathon taking place on October 31, 2010. This blog is a journal of my journey to that marathon.
