Assuming the country still exists (I’m not too keen on either of our Presidential candidates), I’ll be running the Salt Lake Marathon on Saturday April 18th, 2009. So much for my other plan. My friend who got me into all this stuff in the first place just did his first marathon a few days ago, and that kind of got me excited about it. Then I started thinking that waiting an entire year was too long and I figured that if I could be ready in 6-7 months then why wait 12? So I’m signed up and now I just need to put a training plan in place.
