I have been anticipating this day for several months. Why? Because today is registration day for the 2013 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.
It will be my first marathon, and I am really excited to tackle such a huge challenge. I'm also scared because it's such a huge challenge.
The race is in October, so I won't start training until the summer. But today also marks my first day of training for my next big race, the Indianapolis Mini-Marathon.
A few years ago, I couldn't run a mile. Now, I'm training for my second half-marathon and signing up for my first full marathon. I can't wait to see how far these little legs of mine will take me.
Have you ever run a marathon? Any advice?
