About This Blog: #29

This is an online diary focused on preparations for my performance project  August 2011 in Reykjavik, Iceland. It’s a bit scatological–part documentation site, part place of daydreams, fears, inspirations, fairy tales, artists-l-love, fashion, people I meet along the way, and anything else that will help propel me forward in this endeavor. It’s also part-training log and race inspiration for, yes, #29.

August 20th is the Reykjavik Marathon. They had 10,000 runners last year and I am number 29! I am excited to see how all my training will pay off. I have read a couple different training books to give a basic structure to my daily exercise. The book I like the best so far is Run: The Mind Body Method of Running by Feel by Matt Fitzgerald. Everyone has a different body and each of us has to find what works best for us. If you have ever wanted to run or walk a marathon, I encourage you to pick a place you have always wanted to visit and I bet there is a marathon waiting for you.
