EVENT: 2013 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 15, 2013
I know most people don't use "Fernando" and "marathon" in the same sentence... unless it's to say, "Fernando? The only marathon he'd do is watch Law and Order on Sunday from 8am to midnight."
But the truth is... Yes, I am running the 117th Boston Marathon AND raising a minimum of $5,000 for a non-profit that saves children’s lives (Medicines for Humanity - http://medicinesforhumanity.org/). And I am doing it in about 2 days.
So now that you know I AM actually doing it, you might be wondering, "Why is this dude running a marathon? The closest thing to a sport Fernando does is tailgating at Iowa Hawkeye games."
These two goals, though, are a perfect intersection of both my passion for social justice/public health and my commitment to improving my personal fitness and well-being. So I decided this was my time to do it; to actually push through all physical, psychological, and logistical barriers to accomplish something that not only benefits the most vulnerable children in the world, but also my health.
So during the next few weeks, I will be training (running and cross-training) every day of the week so I can run/walk/crawl/
Are you with me?!
