I've been googling around for weeks, but never really found a April or May marathon anywhere even kind of close. (My sister did find the "Broken Ankle Trail Marathon" but anything that has an injury reference in the title does not make my list. Also, this will be my friend's first marathon and I don't think I'm quite ready for 26.2 on trail.)
This week, my friend called me to report she just ran 7 miles and did I want to get back on track for the March marathon?
I'm really excited because I'd love to run it with her. We were roommates in college and did a lot of working out together. We ran a half marathon together and I'd love to do this race too. We both realize this is a late start to get really get going on marathon training, but she said she would be fine with walking part of it- as long as we finished.
Soooo....this race is 2 months away. I'm going to see how far I can go on Tuesday and if I can hit 8 or 9, I'll feel a lot better. Then I'll actually register.
Anyone have any short term training ideas or plans?
