The start

Last year I decided to run a marathon and chose the Marine Corp in DC. Mostly it was because my father is a proud Marine and I thought it would be cool. Since then I've heard it's a flat course which is good since I like running on flat ground. It would be better if the entire thing was down hill, but whatever.

Last year I got hurt and thrown off my training program, so I deferred until this year. I am on an 18 week training program that throws in hills, fartleks, medium runs and long runs. This Sunday I am suppose to do 14 miles. I did 12 a couple of weeks ago.

So far so good. I still struggle to run that long but I haven’t had to stop and walk yet. I think I need to cut down on the bad food and beers, they are both dragging me down. Well, at least the bad food is I think.

I thought I’d chronicle my experience and how I feel after certain runs. Not sure why, since most entries will be something like this

“Tired as hell, legs hurt, sweating a lot, why am I doing this”

We’ll see how it goes.
