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?
