A Non-Runner Running
March 6, 2011
The only marathon I have ever participated in is one that involved back-to-back episodes of Project Runway. Needless to say, I am NOT a runner. But that is about to change. I have decided to run the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon this November. It's something I would never have considered had it not been for my wonderful coworker, Dawn Baker a.k.a. "Wonder Woman".
I've always been pretty active and I enjoy working out, but I have asthma and it makes running extra difficult. I can barely run around the block right now (feels like my lungs are on fire!) -but I am determined to cross that finish line. I think I can do it and I'm very proud to have the support of my coworkers :)
13.1 miles is a HUGE challenge. I'm not going to worry about running the fastest, or killing myself, or anything that competitive. I'm just going to do my best and have fun along way. If I can do this, anyone can. Go Team WTOC!
