As I set out a jog around the huge property, I made a point to pass by the gym tent looking for people working in it. Who exactly comes on this lavish outdoor vacation and ends up trapped in a tent, plowing away on a machine?
Last week, I learned there is no such thing as a vacation from training for the NYC Marathon. Even though I left NY for a week-long family trip down to Long Beach Island, NJ, the running sneakers came with me.
I've been thinking a lot about the "c-word" recently. The thing that took the life of a good family friend just last week. The disease that kills 1,500 Americans every day. And the reason I'm running the NYC Marathon this year.
