Today Nike+ launched the first global running event. 25 onsite locations in 25 cities around the world. The rest of us were invited to "run where you are." Some companies, such as 24 hour fitness, Starbucks, and RoadRunner sports, hosted events in the local area. Chris, Meg, and I ran around my neighborhood. 6.65 miles according to my iPod Nano with Nike+ sport pack. I ran until the elephant on my chest made me stop. But I shaved 6 minutes off my 4 mile time from last week and we finished the whole shebang in 1'10". Not too shabby.
Now comes the training for the marathon. Another 10k in November (the first mile of which is straight up 500 feet!) and then the big day in January. I'm actually doing it folks! Anyone else out there up to joining me in my mission to get fit again and test my endurance????
