I have stayed up hours past my bedtime tonight (with my husband MIA for the weekend) in order to do something I've been dreaming about since 2010. When I first started running (I was more in the Jeff Galloway school but my accident then), I was going to register for a full marathon.
Then I looked at the training and realized that was not the time. So 2010 came and I ran my first half. In 2011 I ran my second and third. And this year I ran my fourth. I am so proud of each of those accomplishments, but I've still had in the back of my head to run the full monty.
I had girl friends who started running approximately when I did who have blown me out of the water and ran 26.2 before me. They've done awesome. And I've eyed their times with envy.
I cannot wait for May 5, 2013. I will be running my first full marathon! I'm psyched and so nervous.
And now, because I've stayed up so late, I'm going to clean up my sewing project and hit the sack. My kids will be up in 6 hours, 7 if I'm lucky.
