Excitement Again!!!

I got a host of e-mails today at work from 2 women who would like me to run the San Diego Marathon. It made me get very excited about the prospect.

I think I shall register this weekend. Then my job will be to become ready to run 26.2 miles. Holy Cow. There are some cut-off points on the course, at 13 and 19 miles. I think it comes out to a 17 + minute mile - if you aren't faster than that, they scoot you off the course. I think I can do better than that.

But I have never in my life run more than 13.1 miles.

What an adventure!!!

17 minute miles is immenently doable :-) It gives you lots of leeway. Congrats!

Good luck! Sounds like a great goal to aim for. I signed up for a marathon next October, and I can only run 3 minutes at a time so far!
