This Saturday night I will be embarking on my first marathon, albeit a walking marathon, but still a marathon. I am nervous and excited to take on this adventure as part of the Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield Team with my friend Crystal, my friend Margo from Brooklyn Fit Chick and my fellow Real Health Contributor’s Rosemary and Phyllis!
Am I prepared??? Hmmmm, well, not as much as I’d like to be, but I am confident I will complete this walk, even if it takes me the entire night. I am happy to say that I met my fundraising goal for this event!!! A big thanks to everyone who donated to this awesome cause and helped me reach my goal.
I have yet to receive my packet with my pink bra :/ I am hoping it will arrive in time for my to properly decorate it. Yes, I will be walking the race in a pink bra alongside all the other participants who will also be sporting a pink bra. It definitely will be a sight to see in NYC Saturday night!!!
Right after the Moonwalk I will be beginning my training for the Virginia Beach 1/2 Marathon which is on September 1st. I will have about 6 1/2 weeks of training, this will be a fast track training plan. I have no time goal for this Half, my goal is to finish. I have full confidence I will be ready, although I foresee a ton of “dreadmill” training due to the hot and humid weather that has been lingering around our area.
Have you ever walked a marathon? Are you participating in the Moonwalk?
