I’m not sure what it is about seemingly impossible challenges and lofty goals that attracts me. The other day I happened to watch the trailer of the ‘Spirit of the Marathon’ movie ( http://www.marathonmovie.com ). Watching the trailer was so inspiring that I’ve resolved to run all the major marathons once in my lifetime ( http://www.worldmarathonmajors.com/US/ ) – Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago, and New York! I’m not sure how on earth I’ll ever qualify for the Boston marathon, but if I don’t, I’ll run it as part of a charity. But I will! Running the Mumbai marathon would be sweet too. So far I’ve run three half marathons so it wouldn’t be completely ridiculous of me to dream of running all those marathons.
UPDATE – The movie is simply terrific. Very inspiring. I need to watch it again.
So far I’ve run:
La Jolla Half (07) Carlsbad Half (08) La Jolla Half (08)
