When I first started running races, I said that I wanted to do the Green Bay marathon as my first. It's a great Packer fan first marathon. The last mile is a lap around Lambeau Field. What more could a person want?!? I've decided that May 2010 will be my first (and hopefully not last) marathon.
I know this may seem like pretty far off, so I do have a plan to keep me motivated and excited to train for the next 15 months. I will be running the Sioux Falls 1/2 marathon in September as I have done for the last 4 years. Instead of falling off the face of the earth after the race, I will set my sights on the Dallas White Rock Marathon in Dallas, TX in December. From here I will be able to continue on my training with Green Bay in my near future.
Over the next few months, I will be running a few 5ks or 10ks to keep me going prior to starting my 1/2 marathon training, and am really excited to see what my race times will end up. I've put so much more time and energy into running this last 2 months. It'll be nice to see what the ol' legs can pull off.
