The first thing I did was get out some books that I previously read when working towards the half marathons. The two books I am reading are 1) The Non-Runner's Marathon Trainer 2) Marathoning for Mortals. I figure if I take advice from both of the books, I can formulate a plan that will work for me and one that I will stick to. I started on book #2 and the first piece of advice was to "not take another step until you read the book!" Well that was OK for me, I had already read the book but needed a refresher. I went to Road Runners and bought a new pair of running shoes and I am now ready to begin my journey.

I am lucky to have a very supportive family and a daughter that is an Iron Woman.

I recently read a very inspiring article, in Runner's World, about an 80+ woman who is still doing marathons..if she can do it, so can I!! So, join me in this journey. I am sure I will whine, and cry, but I hope to have many laughs along this road to a Marathon.
