I'm in! I am officially registered for the New York City Marathon. The race is on Sunday, November 6, 2011 and I couldn't be more excited.
Am I really doing this?
I was able to join through the New York Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation; so in addition to training, I am also fundraising for a cause near and dear to my heart! I hope you all will help me stay motivated, and get motivated to exercise (safely and at your own pace! especially if you have an autoimmune disease) from my efforts. So, I am using the AF Battle Cry, "Let's Move Together!"
Last week, my plan had me running two 3 mile runs, one 4 mile run, and my long weekend run this week was an easy 5-miler. Crazy for a Sick Chick to say 5 miles is easy, huh? Well, it is - next weekend's long run is NINE miles. :)
Stay tuned to the blog as I post my training and fundraising updates. Also, follow me on Twitter (@Zimgirl29), as I will be tweeting as well.
Finally, please consider making a donation. I really need the help to reach my goal!
