This is my new goal: running a half-marathon by the end of this year. This is twice the distance I am able to run right now, but with enough training and determination nothing is impossible. Not even a marathon.
And good luck to my mentor! Jan is doing his first “Ironman” Triathlon this summer (it includes a marathon).
[Added 2007-03-18] Half Marathon? Done. It took only a little more than a month.
