Marathon Training

The goal: Running a marathon before my 30th birthday. The next step: A 10k. The New York Road Runners call the 10k the “perfect racing distance for most runners”. The NYC Marathon training schedule for first-time marathoners might be a good place to start, even if I’m not looking at an actual 26-miler until next October at the very earliest possible.

The Darien Road Race would be a good one to run (trying to stay in the running-for-charity theme), but I don’t think I’d be ready for that by next weekend.

    We did the practice on Thursday and the race on Saturday, so essentially we’ve done it already. Just have to do them closer together.

    And then we need to do them three more times each. BTW, WTF is UXB@bombtek.no?

    Some fake email address I came up with a long ass time ago. I though UXB was a cool acronym. It came up while we were playing a game sometime, so I used it.
