I cannot not tell you how long I have been waiting to make this announcement, almost 2 months. You already know I have been training for a fall marathon, but I have been elusive as to which marathon it would be, well the cat is out of the bag, I am running the New York City Marathon with Team ASICS.
ASICS invited me to be part of the NYC Marathon team with these other amazing bloggers:
The five of us will be documenting our journey to the marathon on video which ASICS will be compiling into a series of webisodes called 5 To The Finish. You can follow the ASICS YouTube channel, Twitter, and Facebook to see all our videos and updates. Check out the first webisode below:
I ran the NYC Marathon last year-check out the recap here. It was my first marathon and one of the most amazing and rewarding experiences of my life. I never thought I would run this marathon again especially since I recently relocated to Tampa Bay, but when this amazing opportunity came my way I couldn’t pass it up!!! I am honored and thankful to have been chosen for this team!!!
Training for this marathon has been rough from moving to the Florida heat. I am lucky to have a great coach, Jess, who is amazingly supportive and can quell all my fears about running so slow in the heat in addition to the hundreds of other ones. Through Team ASICS I have also had the opportunity to get training advice from Coach Kastor! He has also been great at quelling my fears about my slow running from the heat, he has reassured me it is about the time on my feet, not the speed in which I am running! I am also lucky to have a great support in all my social media followings. Anything worth achieving takes hard work so as hard as this training has been I know the end result will be finishing the NYC Marathon for a second time!!!!
Are you training for a fall marathon?
