I went to the Team in Training information session last night and I must say it really exceeded my expectations. I was really impressed with how many people showed up and the benefits of running a race through TNT is amazing! I am also really excited about raising money. It is a very rewarding challenge. I am required to raise $1800, but I set a personal goal of $3000. I also had no idea that they provide you with coaches and training. After hearing that I was seriously considering signing up for a marathon! I got really excited about it and was thinking about doing the marathon in Vancouver. I’ve got this serious drive lately to run a marathon. I’ve been reading a lot of marathon recaps lately and they just sound so amazing and I can not wait to be there some day. Probably like 3 months ago I had the thought process of ‘oh yeah I’ll run a marathon some day, but not anytime soon thats for sure.’ But, seriously I feel like I am ready to tackle the marathon training very soon!
I also like to tackle distances in ascending order. My next big race is definitely a Half, then a Marathon. Anyway, I am psyched about Team in Training and the fact that I will be meeting up with people twice a week to run! Yay! I will actually be making new running friends. Oh and one more great thing about TNT is that there were so many people there that were completely out of shape and have no running experience at all and they were signing up for triathlons and half marathons! Amazing.
Help me raise money for the fight against all different types of blood cancers!
I can not even express my excitement about the fact that my very first Half Marathon is going to be the amazing NYC Half!
