I joined Team in Training last week and have committed to running White Rock Marathon in December 13th. I have been running with the intent of doing a marathon for a couple months. I have never run further than 13 miles, which was quite difficult and up until a few weeks ago had never run for 4 to 5 days a week with consistency. Running the marathon will be a challenge.
Here is a little bit about Team in Training
TNT isthe world’s largest charity sports training program. They provide you with training and support so that you can achieve your athletic goals. In turn the athlete trains and raises money to fund The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
