To all future marathoners out there, hang on to your seats. Registration for TBR DREAM MARATHON will be coming soon! (I’ve gotten a few texts and emails from antsy and eager runners about how it’s taking so long! Relax, guys and girls.)
A few important changes—I would call them improvements—for the race:
1) TBR DREAM MARATHON: MARCH 20, 2011
Yes, we have decided to move race date to Sunday, March 20, 2011 from previously announced March 6 to accommodate supporters or cheerers of runners in another event, Bataan Death March. We realize that, while their will be no conflict with the interested participants, the supporters would’ve been torn between both races and, at the end of the day, runners of both races would lose out on much needed cheering and support from their friends. This early we decided to move our race day.
2) 22-WEEK TRAINING PROGRAM
In the 1st TBR Dream, we provided 16 weeks of training. This time, we’re giving our participants 22 full weeks to prepare for the race. Training will start October 18, 2010.
I had a good, long meeting with our race director and coach, Jim Lafferty, yesterday and he said that the new program is even more friendly for beginners. The first 2 weeks will include walking to start you off slowly.
That’s about it. Apologies for the lack of posts as I’ve been quite busy juggling tons of work with heavy training for NYC. It’s a crazy life, but I’m enjoying every minute.
