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!
