Here's my plan:
- Run the distance for a half marathon this fall. I'm not that far away. I have run 10 miles, and I think that I can work my way up to 13.1.
- Run in the half marathon at the Mad City Marathon next spring. I have a friend who has run that race, so I'm hoping that I can get him to go with me.
- Run in the half marathon at the Dubuque Benefit Classic next fall. I am running in the Classic this fall, but in the 5K, not the half marathon.
- Run a marathon in 2008, presumably at Mad City.
I don't think that plan is totally wild. There's a lot of information out there about how to train for half marathons and marathons. I think I can do this.
