A very good friend made the mistake of saying he’d train with me if I wanted to sign up for a marathon. It would be a mis-statement to say I “wanted” to run a marathon (I certainly want to have run one), but I was deep in the throes of an early-winter-lack-of-motivation and was desperate for a reason to keep active. So…I said ok. And ok, yes…I have to admit, for full disclosure, I think it’ll be fun.
We came up with a plan for a Thanksgiving turkey trot 10k of some kind to get us started. If that went ok and my back seemed willing, we’d use that base to roll into a marathon plan.
So far, so good. We’re signed up for the Camp Letts Turkey Chase 10K on Thanksgiving Day.
