Run for Your Life

24 Oct

Remarkable races… in case you missed the NYC marathon

1 Nov

I once knew two women who were training to run their first marathon. It required the obvious prep work — systematic training that made nonathletic bystanders cringe. They were working moms and logged most of their miles when they could — before most people were awake. Their dedication was remarkable, yet, who wouldn’t throw their all into the chance to run in one of the country’s most beautiful vacation destinations… Hawaii! It cost a bundle, but the cost involved the marathon, and committing to the race made the price seem justified.

Today is race day in NYC. If you missed out, bookmark these upcoming events:

  • Valley of Fire Marathon 11.21.09
    Who wouldn’t want to give the Mojave Desert a run for the money.
