I did it! I somehow got through the fumbling registration system on Wednesday, March 27th. Took me over an hour, due to massive server & system failures with Active.com; but I did it! I am registered for the 37th annual Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) in Washington, DC on Sunday, October 27th. I am both honored & excited to run this particular marathon. No, make that ecstatic! Every now & then I’ll have a “What am I thinking?” thought, but it is quickly replaced with “I can totally do this!” And it’s all to raise awareness of & funds for Parkinson’s research. So very honored!
I’ve researched training plans & I will most likely go with Hal Higdon’s Novice 2 program. Any of you seasoned marathoners have suggestions? Fire away! Training start date is the week of June 23rd. I’m so excited!!
