After we've rung in the New Year with thousands of our closest friends Downtown, it'll be time to evaluate the benchmarks we've "promised" to ourselves in the year to come. Like any January 1st, the expectations will start lofty. Come April, we'll inevitably be kicking ourselves for signing up for the marathon in May since the only training we've stuck to is eating our way through PGH's best burgers. Alas, we only set these goals to become better Pittsburghers... so maybe after crossing off the 10th best-of burger from the list, “running” the marathon might not seem so terrible of an idea after all.
1. We resolve to run the Pittsburgh Marathon.
Maybe not in its entirety. And maybe "running" will be more like speed-walking with lots of heaving. But we're gonna cross that finish line.
