I can't believe I did it. I'm probably going to wish I wasn't signed up during all those long 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 mile long and longer runs, but I did.
Here is the website Air Force Marathon.
I'm nervous, scared, excited, and totally freaked out. What have I done?
I will update occasionally with how my long runs have gone. There will be a post for each Long Run. In addition to the long runs I need to do 2-3 other runs a week of 4-6 miles each. This will be more running in 1 month than I usually do in 6 months.
I decided that I'm finally ready for this because I've now completed 6 half marathons (one just this past weekend) which I will blog about very soon. And after this last Half marathon (13.1) miles I felt amazing. I didn't have to visit the med tent, I didn't hurt severely after. I didn't pull anything out of place. I didn't walk funny the next day. So I felt ready to do longer races. While in Columbus, Ohio at the Columbus Distance Classic running expo there was a booth set up for this Marathon and the lady was telling me all about it and how awesome it was. I looked it up on the website and thought about it. Then doubt set it and I got scared and thought I couldn't do it. After arriving home to Iowa I discussed this race with my husband, he encouraged me to sign up. So here is the first part of my marathon journey.
Wish me luck!
