Am I a Runner Now?

Standard

Saturday, May 9, about a week ago marked a special milestone in my relationship with sports: After completing Helsinki City Run (1/2 marathon) in 2:23:01, this lifelong non-athlete is now something of a real runner.

Check out my race report on the Train for Humanity blog, and support the cause by sponsoring (or just cheering) my training towards a full marathon in September.

  1. Thanks, guys!

    Check out this interview with Christopher McDougall: http://runlonger.blogspot.com/2009/05/born-to-run-interview-with-author.html

    Here’s a quote that sums up why I enjoy running so much:
    “Once people learn to stop bashing themselves as hard as they can from start to finish and learn to enjoy those middle miles ā€“ the way both ultarunners and the Tarahumara do ā€“ then Iā€™m convinced more people will really learn to love to run.”

    I run slow, focusing on finishing and not so much on how much time it will take — and find it great fun!
