2 Weeks down, 14/16 to go !

The first 2 weeks of my fall marathon training are in the books! It has been 2 hot & humid weeks here in NJ! I was lucky enough to be in Wildwood last week, but even still, it was hot & humid the first few days. It's amazing, when you get out to run at 6:00am, and it's 85deg F and 99% humidity!
I still am not sure how I am going to run NYC. I really want the 3:40 in Philly, so I am thinking my plan for NYC, might be to run it leisurely, and try and leave something in the tank for Philly 2 weeks later. Only problem with that is I don't know if I could handle P Diddy or Oprah having a better finishing time than me!


One last thing, thanks for those who have donated to help me raise the $2500.00. I need to run NYC! It is very humbling to have running friends willing to help me achieve my goal.

Hmmm... treat NYC as a training run and Philly as the biggest race of all.

I agree with what Ted says.

Training run NYC. Enjoy it. Take it all in. Have fun. I'll be there spectating and I will give you a high five.

THEN in PHILLY.....BRING IT!!!!

Having never run a marathon I have no advice, but I wish you all the best in both endeavors and in your pursuit of the BQ. Your attempt next year may coincide with mine, if my body allows it that is.

Cheers!

O, man! No WAY you can beat Oprah, man! because even if you do, she'll send her Chicago Boys - led by her "friend" Gayle - to break your legs.

No, wait. Diddy would do that.

Oprah would just give you ... A NEW CAR!1!
