Broad Street Run Training: 3 Weeks to 10 Miles

Broad Street Run Training: 3 Weeks to 10 Miles

While I will likely never be the first person across the finish line, there is one physical arena in which I excel: falling. 

Yes, I am a champion faller with a wide range of expertise. I've fallen on ice, of course, but anyone can do that. I've mastered the rare double-sub, falling down the subway stairs and on the subway platform. I'm quite competitive in the five star bracket, having hit the ground in a fancy dress at a wedding and having gone down at a fine dining establishment, taking another patron's table with me. And of course there's the sentimental favorite, when I fell out of a chair during class. While teaching.

ACS Team DetermiNation: Marathon Story

As the running community is well aware, it's fall marathon season.  Those of us training for the Philadelphia Marathon on November 19th, or various other 26.2 mile races, are already cranking out long runs every weekend.  This year, after a two-year hiatus, I am returning to marathon training -- this time for the Rehoboth Beach Seashore Marathon on December 2nd.  And once again, I am training with the help of my running team, American Cancer Society DetermiNation Philadelphia.
