I've been thinking about this for awhile, and since I just had my birthday I thought it would be a great time to go for it. I've decided that by this time next year I will be able to run the Santa Clarita Marathon. They have it every November. So, starting today, I am officially in training for 2008. I know that giving myself a year is plenty of time to prepare, but it's also plenty of time to decide to just forget about it. That's where you all come in....you are my accountability partners. I want you to check in with me to see how I am doing. I am not planning on being fast, my short legs just don't take me very fast, but just finishing will be a great accomplishment for me. A friend of mine has run 3 marathons and I am planning on getting training tips from her and hopefully once I have worked my way up a little I can start running with her. For now, I just will stick with our trusty dog, Dodger. So don't forget to check in every so often and see how it's going.
