I'm running my first marathon in May, too. You totally kicked my butt on the half marathon time, lol. I'm about 10 minutes behind you.
I can't remember where I got my marathon training plan ... I *think* it was from Runner's World. I know it's a 16-week plan that goes up to 20 miles and then tapers off in the three weeks leading up to the race.
I'd agree that you have a great base to begin training for a marathon. Check out the training plans at www.runnersworld.com. (They include the Hal Higdon plans mentioned below.) Also consider looking for a training group in your area- I find it much easier to train for marathons with a group vs. trying to do it alone :)
