There are many similarities between financial planning and marathons. It takes commitment, discipline and follow through to complete both. Our own Allison Berger found out how challenging, but gratifying the second one could be recently.
After months of training, on November 1st, 2009, she completed the Rex Healthcare Half Marathon in Raleigh, NC. She finished with a time of about 2:05:20.
Although the course was hillier than her training runs she still beat her goal of running 10 minute miles.
This was the first distance running event that Allison has participated in and she plans to do more in the future.
