Journey to the NYC marathon

A few months ago, I had this crazy idea that I could run a marathon.

That’s right. The girl that would have said “Hell no, I could never run a marathon” a few years ago signed up for the NYC marathon lottery.

Below is the result.



Yes, you read that right. I am going to New York to run a marathon – 26.2 MILES – for the first time in my life and boy am I scared. For the next ~20 weeks, I will be trying to update this blog with my training progress and to keep myself motivated.

Are you excited? I’m excited. Let’s do this!



My name is Mai and I am a recent PhD graduate. :) When not hard at work, I can be found training for a race, traveling the world, or talking about Disneyland. Come join me on my journey and help me navigate this world. :)
