I did it. After 2 years of running for fun and catching the elusive running bug, I registered for my first marathon. I have no idea what I'm up against, but I keep reading things like "impossibly hard, hardest challenge of my life, worse than labor" but I also hear things like "best thing I've ever done, HUGE accomplishment, signed up for another one". So there's hope. There is light at the end of the 26.2 mile tunnel.
I just can't see it. Not yet.
