NYC Marathon

November 1st, with a bib from the National Stroke Association I will be running in the NYC Marathon!  I have to send a huge thank you to Jeff Kline of PRS Fit for connecting me and really making it happen!

Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability. Few conditions can occur as rapidly and with as devastating consequences as stroke. Data from the American Stroke Association indicate that over 700,000 people in the United States suffer a stroke each year. Of these, about 500,000 are first attacks and 200,000 are recurrent attacks.

What started as a January workout challenge with Rich has turned into an incredible base for my training.  I’m pretty scared of 26.2, to be honest (having done a half ironman too).  Here is a picture of my old running shoes with roofing screws in them so I wouldn’t fall on my ass.

Day 30 /120

So the training will bump up now.

I will be in Seattle tonight for Gnomedex, and then San Francisco on the 25th for Foo Camp.  If you want to go for a run, please let me know!
