Upping the miles

I'm finally on my way to upping the miles in preparation for the NYC Marathon.   The Marathon is a little more than 10 weeks out and I'm at 14 miles now.  I'll tack on roughly 1 mile a week to my long runs and in the next 6 weeks or so I should be up around 20 where I need to be in advance of the marathon.

So far I feel pretty good about things.   The hot weather has to break some time soon and we should get some nice fall running weather in the next few weeks that will make the running a much more enjoyable.   I feel comfortable that I can tack on the miles without too much difficulty...ask me again when I get to mile 20 how I am feeling about that.

Other than that I am just focusing on the fundraising.  I am about $1500 short of the minimum I pledged to raise for Zero - The Project to End Prostate Cancer, but I am confident I can raise that by the deadline of October 1st.

I would love if you would be able to help out with a donation by clicking here. 

Thanks again for all your help....below is a map of my latest run.
