I REGISTERED FOR THE PHOENIX MARATHON!
I will be starting my training at the beginning of September (yes, I know that is VERY early, but I am running the Dopey Challenge at the beginning of January, so need to be full marathon trained by then and then STAY trained until the end of February when I CRUSH this race).
I am hoping this will be my Sub-4 Marathon (running a full marathon in under 4 hours). I ran my first full in May and finished with a time of 4:13. There were a lot of hills (pretty constant, but nothing too big) and about half seemed to be trail, so although it was an AMAZING experience, it wasn't exactly what I trained for. I am hoping I can ROCK THIS RACE (and then maybe hang up my full marathon shoes for a while - seeing how much training it takes to get ready for one of the races).
As I am SURE you can imagine, there will be PLENTY of posts over the next few months during training ;) So you've been warned!
Doesn't that elevation chart tempt you to sign up?!
