Marathon Chosen

Saturday May 8th I will run a marathon in Saint Joseph, MN; the Lake Wobegon Trail Marathon. Of course, it isn't an actual trail race. The trail is FLAT and PAVED....a pretty easy course as far as marathons go. I'll move onto trail races later.
This gives me 17 weeks to train. I was planning on waiting until fall to run one but my fiance, who is crazyrunnerguy for a reason, convinced me that I can do it sooner. I'll be planning my training around the beginner's guide in Dean Karnazes's book 50/50.

Of course, this is contingent upon his availability to participate as my pacer...but, depending on how my training goes, I might just do it without it.
