EVENT DATE: Nov 13, 2011
You know these life projects we all have which always seem to be left behind or failing due to some undefined cosmic forces?? Well, in my case, it's RUNNING!!
As deeply ridiculous as it may sound, this Greek chick has always been an outrageously clumsy runner, with injuries at every single attempt and with impressively limited stamina.
It's time we change this!!! Time to get off this hypnotic couch, get my always-patient-and-encouraging puppy and start the count-down.
And in the process, why not do something good for those whose humanity can only leave us in awe... Check out the great work of the 'Arc of the World' (http://kivotostoukosmou.org/kivotos/index.php?lang=en) which I am hoping to raise some money for through this race. Let's try to offer a helping hand...
So here's what I offer: I will do the training and the running. I will also be keeping you posted to offer LOTS of laughs until November.
You will have the UTTER JOY of seeing me sweat, sweat and sweat some more, fall (bound to happen, since it's me who will do the running), hurt, vent, laugh, cheer, be cranky, rumble etc. etc.
In the end, I will stand at the starting line of the Athens Classic Marathon, for the 10K Race!! In case of injury (which is not unlikely), I can at the very least promise you the 5K Race. You are all welcome at the finishing line to cheer, laugh at or with me and have great fun!!
So what do you think?? Ready - Set - GO!!!!
