I did some serious run/walking and made it to the finish line in 42:05 minutes! Yep! That's a almost three minutes under my goal! Woohoo!
So today I am running in the corporate challenge. It's a 3.5 mile run through central park this evening at 7pm. I will be running with more than 90 of my Sesame Workshop colleagues and thousands of other corporate New Yorkers. I have been "training" for the past couple months using the Couch to 5k program, but am in no way a "runner". My big goal: 45 minutes. Last year I came in around 50 minutes with a nice slow jog. Today I will be doing some run/walk intervals of 3-5 minutes each. Hopefully my "training" and adrenaline will get me to the finish line in time.
