My first Marathon!!

I didn't want to do it. Running is ok but anything over a half marathon i would not enjoy. I have done a few half marathons but i did not want to commit to the full 26 miles.

Well the company i work said they would pay the fees for it and give us a special company t shirt to honor our co worker that died in a car accident that was training for the half. Well in her honor i decided to do the full. Mainly to honor her but also so i can have a Marathon under my belt.

If i am ever to know what a full Ironman is going to fell like i need to get this done.

So last night i signed up for the Cellcom Green Bay Marathon in May.

I ave my training schedule laid out already and i am still going to be swimming and bikeing alot.

I am still on the fence about doing my second Half Iron Man this summer. I figure now i am already doing alot of the run training.

Good news is i am at my lowest ever recorded weight. 223.7. I would really like to be right at 200 for this Marathon.

Some of may know i was going to do the disney marathon in Jan 2010 but i had to move back to Wisconsin to get my old job back.
