I asked my boss yesterday, who’s 58, if he was going to run the 1/2 marathon part in the Columbus Marathon in October. And finally, after months of asking him he said yes. I think that’s so cool! He’s been running for years, but has always said that he just doesn’t have the time to train for it. So over the last few month I have been giving him little presents, such as books on training, etc. lol I doubt that I’ll see him during the race (he’s even slower than I am), but we’ll have memories to share the following Monday. 🙂
After he said yes he mentioned that he saw that there is a half marathon in the end of August in Columbus, so I went out and “googled” it. He said he might be running that one with his daughter. So I think I am going to run it as well. It’s a 17 mile day that day, so after I get home I’ll just head out and do a 2 mile out and 2 mile back (gosh, that at one point was a long run for me lol).
So, the end of August (26th) it looks like I’ll be running the Columbus 1/2 Marathon if I make it past the 15 miler this weekend. None the less I am very excited! 🙂
