After much delay and procrastination, I’ve finally committed to signing up for a half-marathon. The Philadelphia Marathon. The race starts at the Museum of Art, winds through the historical city, down to the river, and then comes back to finish on the glorious “Rocky” Victory Steps. I can’t wait for that moment, when I cross the finish line in November, as the theme song from “Rocky” is my usual pump it up, glory song when I exercise.

I started training this morning at 7am. Ran/Walked 4 miles along the East River. The views coming uptown were incredible as I gazed upon the Manhattan skyline, and it didn’t seem quite real. I can’t believe I’ve taken the plunge and am living in this most populous East Coast city.
