Get Ready

Thankfully, "Get ready, get set, go!" is still 7 months away. But today was a beautiful, sun-shiny, 60 degree day ~ a wonderful start to what I hope will be a wonderful adventure. Marathon Training!

Actually, I am just in training for the training. The 'real' training will begin in June. Race day will be 10-10-10. I love cool dates and thought this seemed like a perfect day to achieve a pretty lofty goal.

Now, don't get carried away with yourself and imagine that I have any intentions of running the darn thing. Heck no. I have never been a runner and have no aspirations of becoming one now. But I decided in the year I was turning 40 I needed to do something remarkable. So here we are.

I have one committed friend... as in, she has committed to do the race with me. Others are hinting that they may climb on board, and I'm lining out my cheering squad too. I am listening to advice from my sister, my dad, and some locals that have all done the 26.2 before. I am anxious to join the club. Wish me luck!

First I bought the book.

Then I bought the gear.

Now it's time to get ready, get set and go.

Today was day one!
