Marathon

..Wow, has it been that long?

Have you ever tried to keep a journal? You do really well for a little while, but then you get a little busy for a little while. Then you decide to go back to your journal, so you open it up, and… you haven’t written in 6 months. Or a year.

Nuts.

At any rate, I’ve decided to run a marathon. No, I don’t know what I was thinking when I signed up, but I am rather excited about it. I’ll be running the Ogden Marathon in Utah on May 16th–I hear it’s a very nice marathon to run, without very much difficult terrain.

I’m using Hal Higdon’s Marathon Training Guide  (novice 1 schedule). It’s a lot of running, but even with the cold weather, I’ve found that I rather enjoy running. When it’s really cold outside I run on the treadmill (and, yes, I watch the documentaries found on the extended versions of “Lord of the Rings” when I do–they are really quite interesting).
