Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

ZZ, welcome! We are honored (honoured as Kooky might spell it) by your presence.
What in the wide, wide world of sports is a-goin'on here?
welcome Kirsten! what's your first marathon going to be?
I'm planning on Grand Rapids, which would be the last Sunday in Oct., I believe. I may look ahead to the '09 Bayshore in Traverse City the following May (I think May), too...that would really keep me motivated all Winter to keep my training up (though would spell the end of doing the Riverbank Run 25k on Mother's Day wknd).
Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
Why? Its 5 months before. Many marathon programs are 12-24 weeks. Plenty of time for you to do riverbank and then start a marathon program.
Have you picked a plan yet (or narrowed it down)?
