Signed up for my 1st marathon

I finally did it. After asking a ton of people their opinions on what marathon I should run - small vs large (all being local since I am short on travel funds) I decided to go with large. Thank you to everyone who commented. Although there were many good reasons on both sides I feel I would get such a rush of excitement running with a ton of other runners and a huge crowd. Hopefully it will get me through to the finish. So I officially signed up today for the Chicago Marathon 10/10/10. I am so excited. The past few days and weeks I have had this huge knot in my stomach trying to decide what to do or if I should do it. While the not is still there and I feel a little like I am going to be sick and I am still terrified that I will not be able to finish, I am going to put out my best effort in training so I will finish.


  1. Whoooo Hooooo you CAN do it! Pace yourself and remember RESt days are part of training and help protect against injury!!

    And pffff! you're not only going to finish, you're going to ROCK IT! I can feel it in my bones! LOL so there!

    Way to go - you ought to be very proud of yourself.
