Very First

Well I've done it. I've registered for the MCM. This will be my first marathon ever. I'm all sorts of things: exicted, scared, sick, thrilled...to name a few.

Happy training everyone!

    Ditto here. On one hand I'm excited I can't wait ... on the other I'm scared and realize that I've got a long way to go until I'm ready.  Six more months (or so)!

    And your answer to that question - just because.

    "Why?' indeed.........Last month's favorite shirt said, "Because 26.3 would be crazy."  You could try

    "I couldn't find a triathlon that day"

    "A hundred miler would keep me from trick-or-treating"

    "There isn't enough snow for the Birkebeiner"

    "My swimmer's ear was acting up"

    "Why" was never much of a question at MCM, except in the Crystal City detour

    Welcome!

     

    I liked the "Because 26.3 would be crazy" ... laughed my fool head off.  ;-)

    Welcome! MCM is a great race and this is a great place for resources. I learned 98% of what I know about running here and becoming a runner has been one of the best things I've ever done. Three years ago I was in your shoes- signing up for a marathon and not quite sure what I had gotten myself into or how to really go about doing what I had promised myself I would- and now I'm an ultrarunner, I've raced around the world, and I work with an incredible non-profit where I get to help kids via running! It's been an awesome journey- enjoy the start of yours
