So it is official. I've signed up for the Long Beach City marathon this fall. It's in October so I have roughly 32 weeks of training ahead of me. I hope this is enough to time to run it and do well on it. Now its up to me to actually follow through and do the run. I've been working on some cardio for a couple weeks and going to the gym pretty regularly. Today I begin the real training and I start counting miles. We'll see how it goes and if I'm not too tired I'll keep a status of my progress in here. Wish me luck!
