Training for the Cleveland Marathon begins next week. I’m already trying to get a head start by reminding my body what it feels like to run more than 3 miles. So far, so good. But if I’m going to make it through the next four months of training, I am going to have to be accountable. I think I only finished the Dublin Marathon because I told hundreds (literally, hundreds) of people I was going to do it, and a lot of them donated to the cause I was running for.
This time I want to do more than finish. I want to smash to bits all of my expectations of what my body can do. My friend Dan turned me onto a book called “4 Months to a 4-Hour Marathon,” and he and I will be following the training schedule outlined in that book.
So that I’m accountable this time around, I am posting it publicly here for all to see:
Yep, this is what I’m going to do. Let’s get ready to rock!
