The Count Down Begins!

On Sunday, October 11, 2009, 45,000 runners will take to the streets of Chicago to participate in one of the world’s major marathons, the 2009 Bank of America Chicago Marathon. I will be one of those runners.
The countdown to the Marathon begins, I have 20 weeks of training that starts this week. I am nervous and worried that I won't be ready in time. October in Chicago will be hot and most of my training is going to take place here in the hot humid weather of Virginia Beach.
I will also start to get more aggressive with my fundraising. My goal is $3200.00 and we are now at $2373.00. I would like to exceed that goal and shot for $5000.00.
If you have not donated please consider doing so. For those of you who have donated, thank you for your very considerate donation to this cause.
As I get closer to running in Chicago I will keep posting my random thoughts and training progress.
