Less than a month...

My first marathon is becoming more and more real!  In 24 days, I'll be toeing the line to my very first marathon!  I can't believe it!   I thought I would have more self-doubt at this point, but I don't... yet.

My first 20 miler is this weekend.  So far, not intimidated by it.  I'm meeting a friend at the ungodly hour of 530am to knock out 6 miles before our class starts.  Then we'll bust out 14 with three other friends.  I'm excited for the fun of the group run - and 2 of us are running the Detroit Full, 2 are running the Detroit Half, so we may run together on race day...

I haven't decided on my race day outfit yet, but I have:
  • my training plan in stone
  • night before food planned (Cottage Inn pizza!)
  • morning of race breakfast planned (crunchy PB toast)
  • mid-run fuel ready to go (Jelly Belly Sport Beans in Cherry)
  • newish shoes broken in (New Balance 758)
  • friends coming in town
So I should be just fine!!  Can't wait!!


  1. You will do great Rose. I can't wait to hear about it!

  2. I can't believe it's only 23 days away...oh em gee...

    you'll kick ass for sure!

  3. You are going to have so much fun!! Hopefully someone (cough-Jeff-cough) can plan a meet up again at the expo or before the race! :-)

  4. 20 Miles! You are so lucky, bet you never hear that! Good luck and I hope to see you at Detroit, I'll be out there running and cheering....
