Hi Friends and Family!
Well as most of you know (probably because I talk about it a lot!) I have signed up for the 2011 San Francisco FULL Marathon this July. Yes, I said full. That is 26.2 miles! Last year I did the same race but it was only the half. I finished that in 1hr 52 minutes and am hoping to finish the full in under 4 hours. I love a good challenge and figured that this would keep me busy for a while and really put my competitiveness to good use :) The training began about a month ago (beg April) and I am excited to report that I am now up to running 14 miles - with still about 3 months of training to go and a lot more miles to pile on! I log all of my runs on nikerunning.com. If you want to track where I am or follow my runs, you can follow this on the below link:
Last year I decided to put my running to a good cause and raised $500 toward a local charity and have decided to do the same this year. This year I have chosen to raise money for a charity called The Guardsmen. The Guardsmen has been helping at-risk youth with the resources they need to thrive. Each year The Guardsmen sends 2,500 youth to outdoor education programs and provides scholarship support to more than 250 students at Bay Area private schools. Here is a link to their website:
Thanks in advance for all of your support! I hope to see you all at the finish line!
