Needs more cowbell!

    I'm gonna be watching this tomorrow night.... Next on NOVA: "Marathon Challenge" Marathon Tuesday, October 30 at 8 p.m. Check your local listings as dates and times may vary. (Broadcast in High Definition where available.) How do you run 26.2 miles if you have trouble making it around the block? With good coaching, discipline, and lots of group support, as NOVA shows when it follows 13 normally sedentary people through a training regimen designed to prepare them for an ultimate test of stamina and endurance. Created in cooperation with the Boston Athletic Association(R), which granted NOVA unprecedented access to the 111th Boston Marathon(R), and Tufts University, "Marathon Challenge" takes viewers on a unique adventure inside the human body, tracking the physiological changes that exercise can bring about.

        May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.

          I'll have to mark that one down ( Smile) or find it on bit torrent( Evil grin).

            Thanks! I hadn't heard about it. And following the Nova, at least in my area, is Race for the Soul, about Western States 100.

                            Did anyone else watch it? I found it interesting that only one of the women really changed her body composition...guess I'm not the only one who runs a ton and has not lost an ounce of body fat (clothes fit exactly the same as they did pre-running and the scale hasn't really changed, either). Very inspiring...if those folks could do it in 40 weeks, then there's no reason I can't slog it out next Oct. after 2.5+ years of training. Wink k

                              I just caught like the last 15 - 20 minutes of it. It was cool seeing them finish.

                                I got misty. I have no doubt in my mind that I will cross the finish of my first marathon and start bawling like a baby on the pavement. Eryn will hopefully be holding my hand as we finish, just as we did for my first 25k (her second). k
