I Love Being a Masochist! – The 2012 New York City Marathon

13 Apr

I’M IN! I just registered for my 7th New York City Marathon — my 12th full marathon altogether! WOOT! WOOT! *raises roof*

This year, I’m aiming for a finish time of 4 hours, beating my personal best from last year’s marathon of 4:34:33, which was 37 minutes faster from my previous personal best from the year before in 2010 of 5:12:17. This sounds crazy ambitious, but I’ve been challenged by my friends who think that I can do it. As long as I stick to my running schedule (which includes running when I really don’t feel like it), I should get as close to the 4 hour mark as possible!

Hey, that’s not bad for a girl who once weighed 240lbs and couldn’t even run HALF a block DOWNHILL!

And one day, I hope to FINALLY qualify for the Boston Marathon! I WILL eventually run a 3:35 marathon! Someday…:)

Looking forward to running the ING New York Marathon on Sunday, November 4th, 2012! It’s ON!!!
