So, I am thinking about training for and running in the 1/2 Marathon in late April this year. I am almost 40, terribly out of shape and probably 50 or more pounds overweight. A buddy of mine at church mentioned that if I wanted to try and do it, that it was time to start training now. My wife and I were talking about it and she said the only bad thing about running in a race like that is the cost so I looked it up. Sure enough, it costs $110 to run the half marathon so I got my viral mind ticking.
If I was to challenge 11 of my buddies that I could do the half marathon in less than 2 hours and 20 minutes that they each pay me $10 toward the entry fee. Not that I really could not afford the fee, but it would at least take that one objection away and make me have to find another not to do it.
Anybody want to challenge me to give it a shot????????
