What is Project One Five?

On Sunday, May 20, 2012, I will take part in my second full marathon in Pasadena, California. But if that marathon was held today, I honestly don’t know that I would finish. I’m not ready. I’ve lost my focus and my commitment.

I have a plan, though – Project One Five. I have one hundred days between now and May 20th. I plan to use those days to complete five hundred actions designed to get me ready. And when I am done, and I cross the start line outside the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, I will do so knowing I have prepared myself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

If others are reading along, welcome. I’m sure I will need the support and encouragement along the way. Your comments and feedback are always appreciated.

And now, it’s time to kick it off.

    • It’s my way of focusing my body, mind and soul. 500 actions over 100 days, each preparing me for a 26.2 mile run through Pasadena.

  2. I trained for the MCM last year and had to stop due to physical sickness after mile 17. I’m re-training again this year (I deferred) and have found myself in the spot where I know I could get my body to run it, but not necessarily my mind. I appreciate you posting this and hope you don’t mind if I use it to “train” myself. I don’t know if I’ll be fast enough to finish come October, but I’ll know I’ll have done everything in my power to make it happen. And I’m on spark: Sassymoho. Love it!

    • If there is anything in this blog that helps you train for your own marathon, you are welcome to it. I ran Marine Corps last October and it was one of the very best moments of my entire life!

  3. I am trying to train for a 5k on the May 19th, so I will train with you. I need all the help I can get and I hope I can be some help to you!!
