This morning I registered for my FIRST FULL MARATHON!
Yup... The girl that said she would NEVER run a full has officially signed up! And if you know me, if I pay for the registration then I AM DOING IT (I think my middle name must be "Frugal")!
I will be running the Surfer's Path Marathon in Santa Cruz, CA on May 18th.
I actually spent a good, long time this past weekend looking up training calendars to make sure I would be able to adequately train for the race (since it is just over 3 months from now - EEKS). I decided I would use the Hal Higdon Novice 2 training calendar, slightly modified. I had to switch up a few of the runs because of the races already on my calendar and I also added in strength training on an original rest day. I do well with a schedule, so it was great to put things down on paper and see everything right in-front of me (okay, maybe I am more like OCD about my time and NEED it).
|Possibly adding a 10K on May 4th, but haven't registered yet, which is why it isn't in Sharpie yet ;)|
I will be running the race with a friend, which will be super nice - that way she can kick my butt if I ever feel like throwing in the towel.

I am BEYOND BLESSED to have an amazing support team in place! And I have a feeling I'm going to need to rely on them a BUNCH for these next 3 months!
Have you ever run a full marathon?
