Nov. 21st

Everyone keeps talking about the marathon and I see the Roadrunners every Saturday,  and I feel so bad that I’m sitting here getting fatter SO… that’s it.

Tonight… 3 miles run.  We’re leaving in 30 minutes (The Little Garmin and I).

I already did 20 push-ups, 20 sit ups, and 20 squats.

I should do an experiment:  combine what I learned from Roadrunners + BHIP and see where that leads me (probably nowhere).


Have courage….

UPDATE:  These are the numbers after my run

3 miles


time:  38:09

Too fast.  I need to be going at aerobic pace which should put me at a 14 minutes/mile.

I just found out that former sumo wrestler champion, Kelly Gneiting, will be running the LA Marathon with me!!!

🙂  He’ll be my inspiration this year.  He ran one marathon in 11 hrs.  So, if he can do it, I can do it too!!!

It’s official

I am finally making it official.  I signed up to do the Los Angeles Marathon XXVI on March 20, 2011.

I’m not sure how I will do since I haven’t trained for a marathon.  However, for the past two months I have been working out with the Health Improvement Program aka BHIP!!!  It’s been a great two months.  I’ve gained muscle and lost a few inches 🙂  Despite the hard workouts I feel full of energy.  The 5:15 class if my joy, and the highlight of my day.  Everyday I wonder what the coaches have stored for us.  I have given it all I have during workout.  I can do pushups and squats now.  I am not skilled with the bar weights, but I cant’ be good at everything.  I do hope that BHIP helps me with my second marathon.

Happy New Year!

It’s January 15, 2011.  There have been some new developments in my life.  One of them is that I got accepted to a Health Improvement Program sponsored by my work.  I began bootcamp on Monday, Jan. 10.

Five days later and I feel better than when I started.  I’ve decided to record my new adventure here, in addition to what is an attempt at training for a marathon- on my own and less than 3 months to go.  It sounds like suicide; especially when you’ve gained 10 lbs and is out-of-shape.  But, I have faith 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving!
