Even though my IT band is nowhere near healed, the doctor did release me today to run my first full marathon, the Columbus Marathon, on Sunday. Gone are my dreams for a 4:20; now I'm left to hope that I can physically make it across the finish. For those of you who have followed my training, you'd recall that I had fantastic training runs until two weeks ago on the 12-miler. I know I'd be sick if I couldn't run Sunday, but knowing that it is going to be a much more difficult and painful experience than I was anticipating is so stressful.

There are several other SP running both the half and full, and it will be great to see them!

I hope to improve upon my time from the Valentine run. My husband and I are running it, I'm sure he will leave me in the dust :-)

good luck to all racers - Lots of halfs being done - love it! I am actually thinking about entering a 15k race on Saturday - The blue lake 15k - I have some non spark friends running and would be a good support to them.

I will be running a very local 5k October 16. Its the Muscatine County 4-H Fun Run 5k in Muscatine, IA. It was suggested to me by a very experienced Spark runner that I find a 5k about 3-ish weeks after my HM Sept. 26 and see how much faster I run a 5k. So that makes this an experiment and I would not have run a race this soon otherwise.

Stay tuned!
