Looks like I found the right group! I'm former active duty.. 4 years in the Air Force, stationed at the Pentagon. I remember how crazy everything got every year when they held the MCM, and I've always wanted to run it, so I'm super-pumped that I'm signed up! This will be my first marathon, too. We're planning to get there Friday night, my 7-year old is doing the kid's run on Saturday, and then Sunday, or course, is go-time!
I'm using the FIRST training method.. 2 weekday runs with a combined mileage equivalent to my LSD weekend run, strength training in between. Up to 13 miles so far, and doing great!
Thanks to both of your for your service, looks like I'll be in great company for my first full marathon!
Don't think, just do
