glad you're finding motivation - did you sign up for the full marathon?
Right now, I'm sticking with the half and seeing how that goes. I'm realizing that every additional mile adds additional problems to my recovery (duh). The progression is equally interesting as it is painfully haha. I'm going to wait until March 3, the date of my 16 mile run, to see if it is all too much to soon before I register.
sounds like a smart plan!
great motivation! the but it doesn't matter is something i need to adopt! i'm GREAT at making excuses why i should stop my cardio! hahaha
