My First Marathon, Memorial Health Tybee Island Marathon

I had for many years never ran a marathon because of the time it takes to train that much and the frequency of injuries among people training for a marathon. My wife (Julie) and her running friend (Kim) decided to, so I did also. This involved training all through the winter. They had some walk/run they found somewhere I did not want to do a walk run plan so I trained by myself. Unfortunately I was also busy with work at this time and did not train as much as I should of. My longest run was 18 miles, but I don’t think I did those long runs often enough.

Don't you just love...

When you get to that stage in your running when you can actually go running without a watch? That you go to a race just for the fun of running it? You don't even wear a watch or worry about your time.
No pre race stretching or warm ups or worries about what to wear. You just wear what you want to keep warm without worrying about extra clothes slowing you down.
You can just talk to your friends it does not even matter where you line up.

I Love Running

I think about running all the time. All of my friends are running friends and all of the best times of my life have been while running. I especially love racing sometimes going to 20 or 25 a year. The best memories I have are all at races.
