the final challenge for the contestants on TBL (the Biggest Loser) is to run a marathon.
that is clearly a great idea for people who
1. were morbidly obese 12 weeks ago
2. have no to little running background
3. have 26 days to train
4. have current injuries [hip, knee]
I truely believe that anyone can finish a marathon - given proper training and time.
[I do realize that any publicity is good publicity, but shame on you NBC.]
(um I do think Mike pissed some people off by the "I'm not saying I finished a marathon. People RUN marathons. I'm walking it." still a marathon, buddy.)
.... and now I am crying because - bringing it back to me, of course [it is my blog] - the next time I finish 26.2 miles will be at the end of IMCOZ. sometimes I truely cannot believe I am attemping this. I cannot believe my training now will double [double!]. Ironman will be my life but I want it so badly. and people ask me why // why put myself through this, through the training and the pain, the exhuastion and I wish I could answer but I can't. it's too hard to explain/ it's just a goal, a fire inside, part of who I am and who I want to be. november seems so far away but it's not. RI 70.3 is in less than 9 weeks. Ain't it funny how time slips away says Dave Matthews and isn't he right.
