SO I've begun my training for the Vermont City Marathon. Thats 26.2 miles for those of you who don't know or think that its 25 or 26, just from finishing the half I know those last .2 around the waterfront are exceptionally gruelling and endless. I am fortunate enough to work with a few experienced athletes. One of my boss's wife is a professional Ironman competitor. Her twin sister Kelly Liljeblad (the best coach in the world) hooked me up with a marathon training program. In the photo to the left she is finishing a marathon in Miami. By finishing I mean winning a marathon in Miami, and she finished with a time of 2:47:13. Impressive right? Well her best time is actually 2:32:27, so if I can even do an hour slower than her I'll be exceptionally happy. Goal 1: finish the marathon Goal 2: finish in under 4 hours Goal 3: finish in under 3:30, they are ranked in order of likeliness... Goal 4: meet the prettiest girl in Vermont on the course and hold hands crossing the finish line while she writes her number across my bicep in hot pink lipstick. I might change that to my number one goal...continuing in order of likeliness. But seriously though, if you want to be in a place surrounded by only fit and mostly attractive people, then go to a damn marathon. Thats my first dating tip...more to come fellas more to come.
