Yep. I’m running a marathon. It’s next year, but it seems so close. I’ve been officially training with Team IN Training, a fundraising arm of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, since September, but I’ve been running again since June. I’m now up to 9 miles on my long run, and running 3 times a week.

So far, I’ve gone from running 2 miles at 17 min/mile to running 5 miles today at a 10 min/mile pace. Not bad, eh? Oh, it’s going down, for sure. My goal is to run the Austin Marathon on 2/18/2007 under 4 hours. That means I will run at least a 9:15 min/mile pace.

I’ve got my work cut out for me! =) Send good thoughts my way…
