I'm going to sign up for my first Full Marathon

The Date: June 3rd, 2012
The Place: Worcester, MA.

This past year, I did my first half marathon in Worcester, Ma. with this same organization. Seams only fitting that I do my first marathon with them. Thinking about it makes my stomach turn! I get nervous. To date my longest run has been about 14.5 miles. I can't imagine running 26.2. But I already did 2 half marathons and will probably do a couple more, but I want to shoot for something bigger. Something that will push me to be a better runner.

This is the same group that put together the Springfield half that got cancelled because of the hurricane. They are sending me a 20% off coupon code for my next race in 2012 so I will use it to enter this one. That will bring it down to the same price as the half! Good enough deal for me!!

This week so far I put in an 8+ on Monday. 6 on Tuesday during lunch and 6.5 today, also during lunch time. There is a 10 miler on Monday (Labor Day) that I'm thinking of doing, but it's still up in the air.

Anyone doing any runs this weekend?
