The Marathon: Entry 1
And now the news you’ve all been waiting for: I’m going to run a Marathon.
Probably the New Jersey Marathon on May 3, 2009.
If any of ya’ll want to run it and live in NYC, I’m going to see if I can put together a group of friends to train. Or perhaps to train with a formal group in Central Park or somewhere else in the city.
We’d have to start fairly soon (by early January) because the race is only about 23 weeks away. I think it generally takes 16-20 weeks to train for a marathon. You probably should be able to run at least 4 miles without too much difficulty before beginning to train.
By the way, the New Jersey Marathon is supposed to be a beautiful, well-organized marathon with a lot of runners (check out the reviews here). It’s less than 60 miles from NYC along the ocean.
In any event, I’m also going to write about the marathon. So, stay tuned.
