Welcome to my blog!

So I have finally decided to join the legions on bloggers, all those people out there with computers, internet connections, and important things to say. Why shouldn't I be one them?

In November of 2007, I accomplished a lifelong goal by running the Philadelphia Marathon. Throughout my training I repeatedly thought to myself that it would be fun to have a blog and record what I was going through while preparing to run 26.2 miles. Well, that blog idea never panned out; however, while I was training, I decided to choose a second marathon. I chose to train with Team in Training, and I am hoping to run the Paris Marathon in April 2008 (provided I raise enough money to do so. If you want to donate, go to this website: www.active.com/donate/tntnyc/tntnycELittle). This time, I want to try and record all the ups, downs, and in-betweens. That way I will have more than just pictures and memories to look back on when I am in my thirties and my knees no longer function!

I hope you'll check back often.

Hey Emilie! Am I the first to leave a comment? Anyway, I keep forgetting to tell you on the phone how neat I think this is. What are you going to do on this blog - talk about whatever issues you feel like talking about? I want to start a blog spot too! Or maybe I can read yours and send you my comments. That could be fun. You're the greatest and I love you!
