I have been getting a little nervous lately about the Philadelphia Marathon. It is my FIRST marathon and I am sure I am not the first person to get the “first date jitters” with the marathon. My workouts have been going pretty well, especially my speed workouts but those are my favorite, so I am not surprised. My long runs are a different story. Long runs 8, 9, and 10 were great. 11, and 12 not so much. I am afraid my body won’t be able to handle the distance. But then again, it is my fault for putting a very, very ambitious goal of sub 4 for my first attempt at 26.2 miles.
So today, I decided to sign up to run with the CLIF Pace Team. Ashley and Melissa are running the marathon as well (together) but we are running at different paces and I don’t want to run alone. I know, i know. I will be surrounded by thousands of other runners. I am just not the greatest pacer. ::cough:: I start out way too fast ::cough::
Who is running the Philadelphia Marathon with a sub 4 hour goal?! Who wants to run the Philadelphia Marathon with me!?
