I once said I would run a marathon when I turn 30. Next year I turn 30. <gasp>
Today… I registered for my first marathon.
I will be running the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 3, 2015. I was really torn between which marathon will be my first, but when it came down to it, I wanted to run in my home town. I won’t lie. The course is going to suck for me. I wanted to run a very flat 26.2 miles for my first one, but running this as my first just seems right. I ran the Pittsburgh Half Marathon as my first half back in 2012, so it just made sense to stay home. It also doesn’t hurt that I have some AMAZING friends who are going to help me not just train, but plan on running it with me!!
In the next 2 months, I’ll be getting my training plan together so when it’s go time, I am ready!
215 days and counting…here goes nothing!
What was your first marathon? What advice would you give to someone running their first marathon?
