Family and Friends (and possibly blog readers that I don't know), I have decided to run the Salt Lake City Marathon. Why? It is something that inside I have always thought "That would be cool". Also, It is a great way to inspire me to get into better shape. I have a Gym membership, I might as well use it.
For as much as I run, I do well for myself. Yesterday I ran a few miles in 25 minutes. That is within the pace to finish the marathon in 6 hours. After working regularly to get myself in peak condition, I am confident I can finish the marathon, and in good time.
The downside is, it costs $90 to register. That hurts a bit. So, I'll put some money aside I suppose, because I really do want to do this. But if you feel so inclined to donate to the cause, I accept cash and Paypal. I'm not asking for much, just $5 or so. And feel no pressure to contribute at all. If you do feel so inclined, I would be most grateful. Other than that, moral support is definitely needed, so all the encouragement you can give would be great.
