I finally did it. I started. Less than 6 months to go before New York. I wanted to start on May 1st, but the cough was killing me.
I still have a little bit of the cough, but it's getting better.
My quads were not thrilled to wake from their 7 month slumber. I've done some hiking and some running, but today was the first venture I would actually call "running" since October.
