Looking into the New Year

Standard

Every year that I have been running, I have tried to set a set a goal for the New Year that would challenge me, but was attainable.

Last year, I set out to get a 5k PR/good Peachtree Road Race Qualifier.  I ended up going from an average of a  28:30 5k to a 26:04 PR.  Not as good as I wanted, but still a great improvement for me.

This year, instead of time, I am going to focus on distance.  My goal for 2015 is to run a marathon.

I have run a half marathon (about to run another one!) and I am ready for a new challenge.  I’m not crazy about long distance running {a 10k is my favorite race} but I have always wanted to run a full marathon so this will be the year I will do it!

Any suggestions for a first-time marathoner?

What marathon should I sign up for?

  1. You sound just like me, I am focused more on distance. What area are you close to? I signed myself up for two half marathons in the spring and want to travel to Disney for their Marathon
