I'm now registered for the Chicago Marathon in October. Not having run a marathon since the '90s, I felt it was time to make running part of my job description. Although I'm in terrible running shape, I have the advice of friends and experts here at Marathon HQ to get me through the training process. To start with, I decided to get my nutritional house in order by consulting with Matt Mahowald at New Performance Nutrition. He designs custom nutrition plans and also has a line of pharmaceutical-grade supplements. I've recently started a comprehensive program with Matt, and I'll give you updates throughout my training, and I look forward to sharing some of Matt's expertise with you.
