I am going to run a marathon, and I’m going to write about my journey from zero to hero.
I once read a general critique of blogs which asserted the majority of them were poorly written, self-indulgent dribble. This one will be no different (just to set expectations). So why do it? Two reasons:
- I’ve been threatening to run a marathon for several years now, but it’s time to put my money where my mouth has been. Keeping a journal available for public consumption is a great motivator to keep me brutally honest about training (or lack there-of).
- If I guy like me can do it, anyone can. If the good/bad/ugly of my tale helps anyone else…than I’ve done a little good in the world (and that has to count for something…right?).
