I admittedly have many weaknesses, and running is one of them. I can swim, circuit train, dance, play tennis, basketball, baseball - even Zumba for gosh sakes! - for minutes or hours on end . . . but running? Not so much.
There are few things that have the potential to get me excited about running. One thing that never fails is watching, cheering and supporting other runners in long distance races. Last year, it involved cheering on Nicole Feliciano in the ING New York City Marathon. Or reading about Amy Oztan's experience as media running the Disney Princess Half Marathon. This year, I've been following Melissa Skabich's journey to the ING NYC Marathon with her husband, raising money for The American Cancer Society.
