Well, as you can see, I've decided to train for the NYC Marathon.
Running-forever is something I've always dreamed of. I mean this in the most literal sense. Since I was young I've had two re-occuring dreams: one of flying in the most wonderful floating kind of way, and another, of running-forever. 26 miles and 385 yards may not be forever, but from what I hear, it can certainly feel like it. So this year, I intend to turn my re-occuring dream into a reality.
My decision to run stems from a desire to learn what I might be made of when I'm really put to the test. I don't know if I can do it. It's been twenty years since I hit the pavement on any regular basis, and when I do go out for a run, 2-3 miles leaves me tired. My hope in running (and training) for November, is to see a better part of myself this year.
About the fundraising part of it... Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love Central Park. All parks are an expression of humans at our best, but Central Park has played a special role, because it has touched so many lives and it has an incredible story, an oddessy really. It's been high and low, sick and healthy, remembered and forgotten. It was born of a simple good idea: a gift for the people, of the people. And it's a gift we continue to give to ourselves because we've remembered and recognized its worth.
We work hard for Central Park and we enjoy the fruits of the labor. Where trees sing and people laugh and the birds are free to delight, there you have something! So if you want to support an organization that breathes life into 843 acres of living poetry, please support my race. You'll be supporting the lifeline of Central Park, through the Central Park Conservancy!
