My final project for my Collective Storytelling class at ITP is called “Ready to Start.” We collected stories about people completing their first long distance race, be it marathons or triathlons. I worked with my classmate with Ryan Viglizzo, who is often my running partner for 9-15 mile runs on the weekend. He’s completed an Ironman and several marathons. I have finished two marathons myself. We chose to do audio interviews focused on why people decide to take on this big challenge for the first time.
O.K., I’ll admit it. I created this post simply as an excuse to re-post video of me running the Paris Marathon last year. We passed the Eiffel Tower around mile 18. It was my second marathon and I finished in 3:49!
