The Marathoner’s Guide to Non-Training

photo (21)In the spirit of next weekend’s NYC Marathon, I’d like to dedicate these Friday jams to the trotters and the woggers (walk-joggers) of the world. Whatever your thing is, just go with it. 

Personally, I was somewhat surprised when I realized it was almost Nov 3rd (NYC Marathon day)…if I survive next Sunday’s race, I’m going to publish the newest, hottest, trendiest training guide:

 “Don’t make excuses or complain about things of your own doing. Just deal with it. What’s past is past. Learn from it. Don’t repeat the same mistakes.” – My Dad (Upon telling him how unprepared I feel for next Sunday…haha thanks, Dad)

Please Running Gods, tell me everything is going to be okay.

Also, my brutally honest dad rode in a 100-mile bike race last weekend and he’s kind of old…

P.S. It’s not too late to donate to my run :) Click here
