Cut to last month where Melissa completed a full marathon. A MARATHON. She ran for nearly (but just under, go Melissa!) six hours all in one day. I am in awe. And it was for a great cause, so double awe.
So this month I'm making it my goal to run like a girl--Melissa specifically--and push myself a bit. I won't be running marathons anytime soon, but my goal by the end of the month is to be able to run the equivalent of a marathon (26.2 miles) each week--which would be something like 6-7 miles per run and 4 runs a week or however it gets divided up.
If you want to join me, set your own personal goal--be it a marathon or a mile--and leave a comment. You can even take the badge. Regardless, I'll try to update each week or so with my status.
Today's update: did a lot of talking about it, but no running yet. D'oh!
