You're Doing What?!

Running the Chicago Marathon in 2011!

I had a slight scare last year; I thought I had a very bad knee problem. After getting a pricey MRI and discussing the situation with my doctor, we found that all I need to do is strengthen my left knee. The pain is from the weakness of an old injury that is now healed, so I gave myself the okay to train for the 2011 Chicago Marathon.

After being inspired by how hard my father trained this year, I have realized that running a marathon is my dream as well. I am posting this because I want everyone to follow my journey AND support me through peer pressure, haha! Now that the whole world knows, there is no giving up and no turning back.

I will be blogging about my experiences, taking photos, and letting the world know about how difficult this journey will be. Naturally, I may not be a distance runner, but I know now that I have the heart to finish.
