Kristy and I decided to run a 5K on Thanksgiving morning, and since I now live approximately 4300 feet higher than I'm used to, I need to do quite a bit of training. Not only am I running at a higher altitude, but it will be quite cold on November 25 at 9am.
To prepare, I've been reading a lot about conditioning yourself to run at high altitudes, and training to run a race in general. I came across this video, and I think it is pretty wonderful.
I have no intentions of running a marathon (ever), but I am a sucker for triumph of the spirit type things like this. I hope you are too.
