Training for ’93
After reading a little blurb in Men’s Health Magazine in the Fall of 1991 that stated the most marathons run in a single year was 87, I decided I could top that number. A month earlier I had just completed my Shore To Shore In 104 cross country trek from San Fran to D.C. for Habitat for Humanity at a 26 mile per day, 6 day per week, for 15 weeks pace, so I was in shape and ready for a new goal/challenge. Thus 93 IN ’93 was born.
Also in 1991, as I trained/planned for this upcoming goal that was over a year away from execution, I came up with a simple idea of how to C.O.P.E. with putting together such a daunting project…..single-handedly.
Here it is:
Organize……pull all the details together
Personalize……make it your own
Excersize……..go into action
It worked. I ran my 1st 26.2 miler on New Years Day 1993 and ran my 93rd 26.2 miler in NYC in early November. (There were still 7 weeks left in the year, so I added 11 more and ended 93 IN ’93 with 104 26.2 milers)
I learned a lot and in the last 16 years I’ve used C.O.P.E. to accomplish many other things great……and small.
So join me in the TRAINING ROOM with a goal or an idea, and I’ll help you exceed even your own expectations……just as I did.
