In fact, I may be running a marathon in April. I'm getting back in the habit of running several times a week. For a while, tae kwan do was my main cardiovascular training. If I am going to get in shape for a possible marathon and winter hiking, then I need to run.
The proposed marathon is Vienna on April 27. I'll need to start training in a few weeks. Today I ran three miles on the treadmill. It takes me at least a mile to get focused. Once I get in the zone, running actually becomes fun. But it takes a good 10-13 minutes into the run for me to get to that place.
