I didn't freak out, I just felt like I was coming down with the stomach bug all of a sudden. Sporto and Little Man just had the stomach bug, so it's very likely?
I know for sure I WANT to do this race. I NEED to do this race. THIS year. I HAVE to do this race because I am turning 40 this year.
Yup, new age group, come November 2012! LOL. A friend thinks I'm crazy for being so eager to put my body through hell (training and running a full marathon), to celebrate my birthday. Yes, other girls celebrate turning 40 with a spa treatment, a cruise to some exotic beach, a weekend away with girlfriends, with chocolate, or margaritas...but this girl wants to sweat, to ache, to test my limits, to cry, to go through mental and physical agony and aching feet for her birthday. Fun, huh? Can't wait!

Ok, so why haven't I signed up for Team Lung Love yet? Why am I procrastinating??! My Three Things (excuses?) Thursday....
2). I've got a few more questions for LCA so that I know exactly what my commitments are when I sign up to run for Team Lung Love.
3). Honestly, I'm scared more about getting injured during training than the actual race itself. Scared about getting injured and not being able to run this race. I am so injury prone. Since I'm still kinda new-ish to running, I could use all the advice I could get to stay injury free. Like what kind of cross training is best to make me a stronger runner for this marathon, what training plan would you recommend,...ANYTHING!
My goal for MCM is to finish. So if you've got any advice for this marathon virgin, please leave some below! Thank you!
Are you running Marine Corps Marathon this year too? Are you planning or signed up to run your first full marathon? Please let me know!
