My first Marathon in T- 125 days!

Eeeeeek! It seems so soon when I think about it. Today is the offical start of training for the Baltimore Marathon. It's an easy four miles. I'm sure I'll be blogging about it a lot.

Running a Marathon is something I've wanted to do since I ran my first half over six years ago, so it's time to bite the bullet and commit. By the end of it, I just really hope I'll be able to buy and proudly display that 26.2 sticker.

Good luck! If I was still around Baltimore I'd come watch but I guess I'll just have to show support from afar.

Ahhhhh! So exciting! So far, I am still doing the Marine Corps marathon - my knees are getting worse & worse :( If I am in Bmore on the day of your race, I will buy you a beer after to celebrate!

Good luck!! Don't forget to train for the hills. The balt race has a lot of them. When I used to live there, I ran at BWI every weekend. That is a really nice loop!
