EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I have run a couple half marathons, but this will be my first full marathon. Both excited and daunted by the challenge. The training has been a great exercise in discipline
I am using an 18 week training program. I prefer to run outside around my home in Oxford ct or at local races around the state for some of the longer runs.
Running a full marathon has been a bucket list item of mind for quite some time. The opportunity to do it on the grandest stage is very exciting
When I was asked to run the marathon for Americares by a colleague I was immediately drawn to the charity when he told me how it was founded. It was a heroic and unbelievable display of individual giving and courage. The more I read about Americares the more impressed I became.
I am asking friends and family to donate. Legg Mason has done a great job to get the word out among my colleagues to support this great charity.
