At the ripe old age of 71 I've decided that it's never too late to be young! Five weeks ago I started, along with about twelve-hundred other people all younger in years than I, to embark on a training schedule designed to prepare for the Richmond Marathon. Each week you run on your own on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and participate in a group run on Saturday mornings. Sunday is for other exercises. Each week between June and the race in November is a bit more challenging, working up to the goal of completing 26.2 miles. I think I can do this!
