Having abandoned my attempt at a marathon three years ago due to injury, I am now charging myself with getting back in the running shorts. I'm out of shape, overweight, and very unhappy about it. Watch me change!

A Footnote to the Previous Post
I feel like I must point out that even in her heat-exhaustion -induced stupor, she still ran faster than I do now on a good day. Sigh.

Who am I Anyway?
I am a 49-year-old, non-runner who has a crazy notion that I want to run a marathon. Partly spurred on by my sister, I intend to participate in the Detroit Free Press Marathon on October 19, 2008. This will be my chance to do something that I still can't really visualize myself doing, and I'll do it before I turn 50. This blog will chronicle the ups, downs, ins, and outs of my journey from complete physical inactivity to the world of marathoning. Okay, quit laughing.............
