Why Don’t You…

…Run the New York City half-marathon on August 16th?  If you’ve always thought about running the New York City marathon like I have, but like me, found it too intimidating to actually follow through, then why not give the half-marathon a go?  Okay, so maybe 13.1 miles still seems a bit daunting, but it couldn’t hurt to try.  Having a goal is a great way to get in shape and marathon training will no doubt get you into great shape and keep you in great shape.

Registration for individual entry is closed, but if you join with a charity, you are guaranteed entry into the race.  Kill two birds with one stone – get some exercise and help people at the same time!  Charities like the American Cancer Association and the Fresh Air Fun are looking for enthusiastic new members to join their team.  For details on how to register with a charity and for additional information on the race in general click here.
