I am doing it!

So I did it.
Something that I have wrestled with over the past few years.
I signed up to do a marathon.
I have done quite a few halves in my day and have fought back and forth with doing a full.
There are 3 other ladies from my ward doing this one.
Annie is running cause I asked her, bless her heart!
The main reason I haven't done one yet is because I do NOT want to run alone.
We have comparable paces when we do long runs, (well I'm sure she could go faster if she wanted)
So I asked her to run it with me and she said yes!
I am nervous, excited, and scared.
But after watching the Biggest Looser last week, seeing the final four finish a marathon, it made me all the more determined to do one. If they can, so can I.
This will most likely be my one and only...yes my only marathon.
I just want to be able to say that I did one. I accomplished a goal.
Then I'll stick to my 10K's and Half marathons!
Wish me luck!

Good for you, and good luck! I thought doing a marathon was so worth it--just a very rewarding experience! I've only done one, and I might keep it that way as well. Like you, I wanted to be able to say that I had done one, but I prefer a shorter distance.

Katie it's so worth it! And trust me, you'll hurt and probably hit a wall and want to give up, but if you have an awesome cheer squad or a running partner, you'll do fine! Good Luck! Hope it goes really well!
