here we go!

this is a long time in the making. for the last few years, i would step outside my apartment in brooklyn and watch the nyc marathon runners make their way down 4th ave, on their way to 3 other boroughs and roughly 19 more miles. each year, i am inspired and cheer for the runners who have their names written on their jerseys or who are in singlets supporting the cause they run for.

each year i get the "i really want to run the marathon" feeling, and each year a few days later it has seemed to disappear. not this year.

i had actually hoped to run the nyc marathon in 2010, but a new job - getting to actually work WITH the TEAM FOX members that i so greatly admire - kept me from running. i wouldn't change a single thing, though, about being able to cheer on and support the 185 TEAM FOX runners on that day last november.

this year is my year. i'm going to be cheering for and supporting the almost 200 runners that will dedicate their time and energy to training and fundraising for The Michael J. Fox Foundation, but i will also be among them.

this blog will be a way for me to share my stories of training and what keeps me motivated. eleven six eleven is the day i'm working towards, just shy of 4 months from today.

so, here we go!
