You don't have to do this alone.

Task of the Week: Help Me Run a Marathon

So you signed up to run a marathon, eh? You imagined waking up with the sun each day to an increasingly vigorous run. You bought that great pair of running shoes and some moisture-wicking clothing. You got the high SPF sunscreen and a subscription to Runner’s World. Maybe you even built in plenty of training time for yourself — a year? Six months? And if you’re anything like most of us, you probably slacked a little. Then a little more, until you noticed that marathon date sneaking up around the corner. Don’t panic. Just do what Chicago TaskPoster Renee B. did — hire a TaskRabbit to help motivate you. Jessica S. provides daily encouragement and accountability for Renee while she gets back into marathon shape. Genius. Couldn’t you use a running buddy?
