Running a full marathon is a dream for me, that's both scary and exciting. I had been so scared about getting hurt during training, about not being able to finish, about the intimidating distance, that I thought I would be sick to my stomach after signing up - and wonder what the heck I got myself into. Didn't I feel the same way when I signed up for my first half marathon? But I did it, I survived the half marathon distance! What's another....13.1 miles, right??! ;)
So after getting the green light from my doc this morning, getting The Hubs' many blessings and support (gosh I love him so much), and getting all the info I needed from LCA, I realized that I have nothing to be scared about. As long as I train smart, follow a training plan, listen to my body, know that I have the support of my family and friends, I know that in 8 months I CAN do 26.2 miles. I just need to believe. Right??! ;)
Do you remember your first full marathon? Which one was it and if you could do it all over again, what one (or two) advice would you give me? Thank you!
