Week -1

June 29, 2008 § Leave a comment

I am running the NYC Marathon on Nov. 2, 2008.
In order to secure my spot, I agreed to raise $2,750.00 for Team Continuum by Nov. 18, 2008, which will provide cancer patients and their families with vital non-medical assistance to help them with the negative ways in which diagnosis has affected their lives.

I got my plane tickets with my United Miles and so paid only $5 for them.
I paid my $176.00 marathon registration fee (incl. whatever misc. fees there are).
I made my first required $100.00 donation for my fundraiser.

I’m also thinking of putting on a benefit recital in October or so to help raise this money. Yes, with piano. Yes, you’re invited, and so is everyone you know. Yes, I’m practicing again… and it feels good. (Is this some miracle?) I know what venue I want to book, and maybe it’ll just be me, maybe I’ll get some other people onto the program—I’m not sure yet, but the planning process has been building momentum inside my head since Monday night.  

Are you excited?  Cuz I am.

That said, I need to get on this fundraiser/recital/marathon prep.

M 6/23: 2-hr run (13 mi?)
T 6/24:  1.5-hr run (9 mi?) 
W 6/25: too sore to run
R 6/26: 1.5-hr run (9 mi?)
F 6/27:  2-hr run (13.63 mi) 
St 6/28: resting legs

Total for Week No. -1: 44 mi

Thank you, mapmyrun.com!

I think I need more protein.
