I've been wanting to share this for the past couple of days but decided to wait it out just in case. Didn't want to jinx it you know?
Last week, I got a message from a very nice lady named Sarah Richards and she was doing a story about runners who are overweight for Today.com which is the web site of the Today show on NBC. Well, we talked on the phone on Sunday and she asked me a lot of questions about how I started running and how hard it is and a whole bunch of other stuff.
Well the story was published today (on Today! Get it?) and you can read it here. http://www.today.com/health/i-felt-superman-plus-size-marathon-runners-defy-odds-1D80252070
So Sarah, if you are reading this, Thank you so much. Very cool.
The funny thing is that out of all the stuff we talked about, it never occurred to me that she would use the comment I made about feeling like Superman as the title. I was telling her that the first time I managed to run 5 miles I felt like Superman because for some reason that distance was like a big step for me because that's what runners always seem to say when asked how much did they run. "Oh, I run 5 miles every day." Anyway it made for a great title in my now-famous opinion.
So how are we gonna celebrate this? Well, duh! With a run! 5 miles of course.
By the way, Sarah Elizabeth Richards wrote a book titled Motherhood, Rescheduled about delayed parenthood which you might want to check out. Her web page is SarahElizabethRichards.com there you will find the entire scope of her work as author and journalist which is pretty extensive.
