WRITING FOR MAGAZINES
Since I'm working on another article for RunMinnesota, I thought it would be fun to revisit the piece published last fall.
|See the title RUNNING REVISITED?|
In February of 2012, after a decade of not running, I signed up with Team in Training to run a half marathon in memory of my late father and raise money for leukemia/lymphoma cancer research.
Signing up was the easy part.
Because I was "torturing myself for a good cause" (that's a quote from a friend of mine), I had a lot of support.
Here's a link to read the magazine on-line. My article is on page 14.
The goal of the article was to inspire others to do the same--get in shape while raising money for worthy causes.
Instead, my body totally fell apart and I had to start all over again, rebuilding my hips and legs from step one.
That's what the article I'm currently writing is all about: getting the right shoes, physical therapy, and (my favorite topic, of course) Pilates/yoga.
|Which leads to my next question:|
Why do so few men practice yoga?
|An awesome friend sent this card to me once in college.|
Best. Card. Ever.
But I have done yoga. Indoors. In air conditioning. Where the sane people live. :.)
