Running My First Full Marathon in 2013!

I'm so excited about running my first full marathon!  It is scheduled for Sunday, March 2nd, 2013 in Little Rock, Arkansas.  I have about a good 12 weeks to get ready for it.  I am an experienced half marathoner so it should go just fine.

Yesterday I put in 15 miles in about 2 1/2 hours.  I plan to run another somewhat long run later this week, maybe 8 miles.

I have no idea of a goal for my first full.  I'm guessing maybe 4-4 1/2 hours.  I know in races I tend to run a lot faster than my training, but I realize with this full I really will need to go slower in the beginning.  I had been running about an 8 mile pace in my halfs and getting my best of 1:50.  The full will be interesting!

So, have you ran a full?  If so, when and where?
