    Anyone ever do this?
    How does it work and did it help you and did you raise money?
    I want to run in the Columbus 1/2 Marathon in May 2009.
    I ran in Columbus Marathon and Akron Marathon earlier this year, not real well, but did finish them.....need to set some goals for the winter so I don't just hibernate 'til the sun comes out again.....icon_rolleyes.gif

    Hi Sporty...

    My x-girlfriend was a member of Team in Training when she set a goal to raise $4,000 for Arthritis and to participate in the Honolulu Marathon. The program did not help her raise the money to reach her goal, however, it did give her a group of like minded individuals to help her achieve her goal of running her first marathon. I did not run the marathon with her, but went in support of her dream to finish the 26.2 miles. I also did my best to help her raise funds and in the end, we ended up donating most of the money out of our own pocket.

    When she and I decided to do the Oklahoma City Marathon in 2008...we did not join a Team in Training.

    She has still maintained the friendships she gained from when she was a member. She did say that all along the marathon, she had people cheering for her as a member of Team in Training. I truly believe that is what helped her finish the marathon because her feet were rather bloody and she couldn't walk for two days ;-)

    Let me know if you have any other questions!
