Marathon Training Has Officially Begun!!!

MARATHON training has begun!!! Yep you heard me right....I've decided to attempt the training for my first full marathon! I'm nervous and excited but know that if this is the route God wants me to take then it's going to be great! 8 miles down this morning in the wind and rain! What a great way to start! It was an awesome run with some awesome ladies!!!!

Stats: 8 miles in 1:33:57 at an average pace of 11:44. Not too bad considering I haven't run in two weeks!

Ever since I got back from Savannah, all I can think about is doing a full marathon. I'm hoping that is God's way of telling me I'm ready. Because in the past I have always said that I will probably never do a full. I'm going to do the full at the Rock 'n' Roll New Orleans in March. I'm already registered to do the half. I am nervous about the training and getting injured so I am praying hard and going to attempt the training and see how it goes. If I feel like I can't do it I can always back down to the half. I'm ok with that. No pressure! But I really want to run 26.2 at least once! :-) Sooo here we go! Training has officially begun!!! :-)
