Breaking News Out Of Brooklyn!

My sister has decided to run a half marathon!

She wrote this on her blog the other day:

“Inspired by my sister, I’ve registered for the Brooklyn Half-Marathon at the

end of May.  In order to prepare successfully, I need to start training this or next week. I’m aiming for this week. I just wish that the weather was nicer.”

How amped am I to hear this? Very.

Scratch that. Make it: Very VERY.

Russatta can claim credit for getting me back into running after years of living a stationary life. She works out regularly and has run long distance events in the past (I can’t remember if it was a marathon or a half marathon she completed in Hawaii). At her prodding suggestion, I ran my first 5k last year. And it felt pretty good. I ended up running another race last year and this year, obviously, I believe I can run a half marathon.

Anyway, I’m sooooooexcited that she’s going to be running

the Brooklyn marathon! I’m going to see if I can make it down to root her on from the sidelines!

Setta B. and I before I ran my first 5k race in NYC in 2009!
