Beth Runs!

I’m a sucker for an inspirational running blog, especially when the writer is a Nike+iPod enthusiast. If you think marathons are only for elite runners, and are out of the reach of “regular” people, Beth Runs! proves otherwise. The blog follows Beth from her initial decision to run a marathon, through her training, injuries, setbacks, more training, and ultimately to the completion of her first marathon (on her 42nd birthday) just 10 months later. It’s a great reminder of what we can achieve if we’re focused on a goal. Because of Beth, I’m seriously considering signing up for the San Francisco Marathon this year.

    So glad to have inspired someone! Have been feeling kind of down this week, not least because I LOST MY NANO! It was my very first one. I left it in a cab and have no idea which cab company it was. (Of course, this was the one time I paid with cash instead of credit card.)

    I just got an 8GB 2nd Generation tonight at Costco and am feeling a little better. And, oh yeah, we bought a brand-new flat screen TV while we were there, so that’s making me feel a lot better (though not much like running!)

    But your mention has inspired me anew, so I’ll be out on the streets of Oakland as soon as I wake up!
