Country Music Marathon

Here come the New Years Resolutions! 

I just signed up for the 1/2 Marathon on April 25, 2009.  13.1 miles.  Gulp!  I've never ever run that far.  5k - no problem.  10k, yeah, I could do it.  But, 13.1 miles - that's going to be a new milestone for me personally.  Mainly because I have an IT band that gets excruciatingly sore at about mile 6.  But, some of my friends have encouraged me that it's manageable with stretching and exercises.

With the help of my friends, I'm going to begin training, hope my knee holds up and accomplish this goal in 2009. 

Country Music Marathon - here I come!


  1. Way to go! Stretching yourself is so worth it. I just jumped into distance running a couple years ago @ the CMM - now this year I'll be there with you, but attempting my first full marathon.

  2. I never competed in this race, by the way. I injured my foot, knee and ankle in March and never recovered.
