Get marathon-ready in just six months

Sept. 14, 2006

Albany -- If you start soon you, too, can get in condition to run Albany's first marathon and half-marathon.

It's just six months away.

That's the message from Jeff Galloway, a former Olympian and a running advocate.

He came to Albany Thursday night to spread some of his secrets for injury-free training in advance of the March 2007 Snickers Marathon Energy Bar event.

"When you embark upon a challenging program that builds endurance folks discover a lot of hidden things inside them. Not only are they able to finish a marathon or a half-marathon six months later, but they can change a lot of things in their lives as a result," Galloway said.

Galloway qualified for the 1972 Olympics in Munich. He still runs about 60 miles a week and competes in 3 to 4 marathons a year.
