OC Marathon here I come
How exciting! I don't like to run, but I do love walking and hiking and feel quite a sense of accomplishment when I finish. Best of luck with your time!

26.2 miles on my motorcycle and I need to pull over for a rest.....
When I saw this thread, I thought you meant an "OC" marathon on Netflix. LOL I was like, Oh, fun!! ;-)
I love to run now but I am just now getting to where I can almost do a 5k without stopping. Marathon is a loooong way away for me. Congrats!!

Awesome! I did my first full last October. I ended up running on an injury (IT Band Syndrome) and actually changed shoes the DAY BEFORE the marathon. But I actually got to run it, instead of walk most of it, which is what I thought I would have to do because I was in so much pain. But the physiotherapy, new shoes and determination got me through with a time of 4:31:35. I took it easy through the whole run. My goal this year is to qualify for Boston (my time has to be under 3:45) and i'm doing my first IronMan (half) in July!! Like you, three years ago I never would have thought it was possible! Go GO GO!!
