Today’s run: 2.6 km, 26 minutes, on the treadmill, started around 6.40 am. I ran 80% of the time and at around 1.6 km I started imagining what it would be like to cross the marathon finish line at Central Park. Would I be all sweaty despite the November cold? How would I feel — would I strut like a peacock or fall to my knees and shed tears of joy and gratitude while gazing heavenward?
And hopefully my body would recover fast enough so I could go sightseeing the day after.
Sure, there’s still a long way to go from my measly 3 km to the 42 km. But no harm dreaming right? 😀
This is an entry into the running journal I have created to chronicle my experiences as I train and prepare to run the TCS New York City Marathon 2015 and fund raise for Team for Kids, an international running group that is committed to supporting health and fitness programs for underprivileged children in the US and Africa. Read my introduction entry where I share how this journey started, and if you would like to donate to the cause, simply go to my secure fundraising page here!
