In a diary from yesterday I noted that I had signed up with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Societies Team In Training program. Basically I’ll be running the NJ marathon in Long Branch NJ on May 2nd as a fundraiser for LLS. In essence if you’ll donate to the Leukemia & lymphoma Society I’ll run a marathon for ya!!.

We haven’t started the “official” training yet but I’ve been running on my own for most of the year and thought I’d post a diary on my progress.
To date my longest run was 11 miles on a treadmill and 10 on the open road and my weekly average is up to about 30 miles.
Today I ran my fastest 4 miler to date at 35:28 or 8:52 per/mile so I’m psyched.
Our official start date is the 14th so I should be more organized with all of this by then. Until then I’ll just keep plugging along.
Thanks for all you help.
