To marathon or not? That has been the pressing question on my mind since the half.
I finally took a step and signed up to start meeting with a marathon training group on Saturdays for long runs. It means a bit of a drive and early runs, but I felt it was a must have, if I am going to try to run for more than two hours. It starts this Saturday and the forecast....rain. LOL yaaaa, fun right?
I am super nervous, and just hope I can somewhat keep up. I am sure I will be one of the slowest in the group. Some folks are training for Boston (I will be in their dust) and the Shamrock http://www.shamrockmarathon.com/
I actually have a buddy from work who is doing the training team, but she's quick too! Check out her awesome Turkey Trot time.
Robyn is training for her first marathon
I haven't officially signed up for a race, but I do have a few March (15th, 21st, and 22nd) options I am looking at, if the training goes well. Before I make the decision, I think I should actually do some long runs and see how I feel.
Belief - there's part of me that really believes running that long is more than I am capable of. If I ever actually finish a marathon running, I promise I will be shocked. I have considered running to the half distance, and then switch over to 4 X 1 Galloway method. I am not making any hard fast decisions until I see how training goes.
I continue to be challenged with some health issues...mentioned in this Half Planning Post, but I keep trying to push on :)
My hubby put a tree up this year, seemed a little crazy in a house full of cats,
but I love looking at it :)
