20 weeks til 26.2

Just putting this out there...

I have ran 3 half marathons this year, improving my time each race. I always said I would never even consider a full marathon BUT here I am. Tomorrow starts day 1 of my 20 week program.

I will be training with the same girl that helped me train for my first half (April 2011) while she trains for her first ultra marathon. My goal is to train and complete the training. My plan is to stick with the half in April (2012) but if training goes well and there are few hiccups maybe....just maybe.. I will actually run the full.

Anyway, I just thought I would share this with all of you because i know you will provide the best support in this little journey. Thanks! :)

We are starting our training at the end of December so we can talk about how much we "love" our runs 14+ miles and above! :)

    I've never even met you, but I know YOU of all people can do it.

    Maybe you'll even change your name to KimertRuns26_2
    (oh wait, you've used your one shot! ;-p)

    Good Luck!

    LOL right on with the name! I thought about that after... oh well. I still have my blog... maybe it will become "Mission 26.2 Mom" in stead of "Just Another Running Mom."


    Thank you everyone!

    Good luck with your training! There is nothing quite like finishing your first full marathon. I cried like a baby when I crossed the line my first time.

    It's lovely to see someone else who's making the transition from first half to first full. I ran my first half this year and have my first full in April 2012.

    I am positive that you can do it! Shall be here cheering you on.
