The Runs

One day in May of ’09, I decided to take my occasional running and turn it into more serious running. With the somewhat drunken persuasion from my roommate, I signed up for the Baltimore Marathon. Training was long, tough, and gruesome, but I learned a lot about myself, my limits, and what I could accomplish. Running Baltimore was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

For 2010 I have decided to keep it up. I’ve set a goal for myself to run 6 races, all at different lengths. In no particular order, I’ll run a 5k, 8k, 10k, 10 milers, half marathon, and marathon.  I hope that you will follow along and share your own stories as I conical the sweat, accomplishments, and pain throughout this challenge.
