Today, I joined the Clean Sport Collective, #cleansportco

After seeing a video of Michael Wardian, the strangely bionic spuper runner able to drop 2:34 marathons every weekend, joining the Clean Sport Collective, I went over to the site to check it out.  It is an organization that promotes clean sport through athletes, brands, teams, coaches, trainers, and anyone in and around sports.  

There is a simple pledge form to fill out and also a page where you can attempt to get clean sport certified, mainly for pro athletes and brands I'm sure.  There is also a donation page, but I love that it isn't required.  If you want to, you can, but the pledge starts with the individual, not their money.

For myself, it is not only about being an athlete I think, but also about promoting the clean sport initiative on TheDailyFitnessJournal and my social media.

11/01/2016 4 days left and ready to go...

I am 4 days out from the marathon and I feel ready to go.  I ran an easy 3.5 miles this afternoon and about 8:20/mile pace.  I'm just trying to keep the legs loose at this point.  I need to try and increase the sleep and water intake.  We'll see how that works out over the next few days.  

I spent some time today trying to find some song options for the video I am going to shoot of the marathon.  I listened to about 40 songs today, still not sure.  I guess when I see the video coming together, I'll get a song match.

Thursday, I head into NYC for the Expo at the Jacob Javitz Center.  It's an easy trip in as I will drive to Weehawken, take the ferry over the river, and walk a block from the terminal on the other side to the Javitz.  The weather should be good, so the ferry and the walking about should be nice.  I have some specific ideas about the expo this year as I want to touch base with the Zensah people as an ambassador, as well as a couple other brands I want to get together with.  Last year, I had a great time ther, but I didn't connect my blog/site to anyone.  This year, I am hoping to connect with some people.

Over the next couple days, I am going to run a couple more small jogs as well as get some walking in.  I'm not trying to win the race, but I do want to enjoy it and finish.  I do need to do a little more practice time with the GoPro.  I am going to bring it to the Expo and shoot some video and maybe do like a 30 second to a minute highlight video.
