13 Weeks to the Peachtree - Day 6 - Refreshing H20 to Go

Molly extolls the virtues of water and drinking lots of it in her 13 Weeks of training for the Peachtree Road Race.

Molly extols the virtues of water and drinking lots of it in her 13 Weeks of training for the Peachtree Road Race.

You can jog along with Molly Read Woo - a not too fit Mom in her fifties who lucks up in the lottery for a spot in the famous Peachtree Road Race, and goes off on a 13-week-long high-intensity self-improvement jag to get ready for it, throwing herself into a training program that's as unrelentingly fierce as it is unpredictable.... Okay ... for those of you who have just joined us - you don't really have to jog. You can just walk along for starters.... We got 13 weeks to get there ...

Hey, Molly. I googled you to try to find an address to send you a thank you note, but I found your blog instead. Good luck in the P'tree. I did my first one a week before my 50th birthday ... so you can do this. If you think about it, please send me your home address. Love to you and Max, from your friend with the Nimbus 2000!

Hi Christine - Glad to know I'm not the first one to try my first Peachtree at 50 - or in my case, a little after that -- Having fun with the training for it - right now I'm at a pretty fast walk, not quite a run yet ... bu hey - as long as I make it from start to finish - I'll be happy! Hope to catch up with you at Spdl soon - trying to get myself up a little earlier on the weekends, now... Glad you're flying with the Nimbus! I might try that next year!
