Join the Celebration!

As you know, Marathoner in Training (a.k.a. MIT) has changed my life. 


About a year ago, my good friend Chrissy and I started running with MIT in the hopes of running a half marathon together. In late August of last year we not only ran, but finished the Spirit of Columbus Half Marathon – all 13.1 miles of it – in a little over three hours. It was the single greatest accomplishment of my life to date.

Since then, I have run four more half marathons.

And I’m not stopping there. In December, I will start training for the Pittsburgh Marathon in May 2011.

But, I won’t be training alone. I will be running with MIT for the third season in a row.

Won’t you join me?

As you may or may not know, before I started running, working out, and making healthy choices when it comes to food, I was pre-diabetic, and severely overweight. My sugar and cholesterol were out of control, my thyroid was out of balance, and I felt like crap all the time.

Since I started running, I have lost over 50 pounds, am no longer pre-diabetic due to normal sugar and insulin levels, and my thyroid is under control for the first time ever in my life. As a matter of fact, I even take less hormone-stimulating medication than I used to as a result of getting healthy.

And I won’t stop there. I still have a long way to go to get to my healthy weight and fitness and health and weight are things I will always have to be conscious of. I will always have to work at making good choices and taking care of myself. I can never go back to eating whatever I want, whenever I want, as much as I want, and never exercising.

This season, MIT will be celebrating its 10 year anniversary. There will be two information sessions on December 13th and 15th at 7:00 p.m. at the Ohio Health Campus in Westerville.

On Saturday, December 18th we meet at Thomas Worthington High School.

And we start running. For some of us it will be a reunion of old friends, for some of us it will be the first step in what will prove to be an awesome journey; and for all of us, it will be the experience of a lifetime.

Won’t you join me and the finest group of pace coaches as we embark on this journey together? Won’t you celebrate getting healthy with me?

It doesn’t matter how little or how much you have run before. You can do it. You can run the distance. You can do it because I did and because you will have the support and encouragement of hundreds of your teammates every step of the way.

Go to an information meeting. Run a Saturday or two and give it a try.

Make the commitment to change your life. You won’t be disappointed – I promise!
