I just found out that I was accepted through the 2014 NYC Half general raffle!
According to the training plan I found online, I can go from "couch to half marathon" in 14 weeks. Let's hope the internet isn't lying, or I will be in serious pain on March 16.
As much as I'm running the half to give myself a goal, to compete, and to force myself to work out, I'd also like to raise some money for charity! Please consider donating as a holiday gift, belated birthday, or just because you feel like supporting my cause: Legal Momentum. More info here: http://www.legalmomentum.org/
Not only is it an outstanding cause and one that I'm happy to support, it's also a A-rated charity on charitywatch.org. Consider checking that website before donating to any cause, so you know where your money is going!
