Detroit Free Press Marathon, October 29, 2006
I went through the whole registration process. The final cost was $69.73 ($65 plus handling fees). When it came time to hit the register button, i stared at it for a while thinking.. do I really want to do this? Run for 26 miles straight?!
I clicked the button, and I suppose from here on out, there's no turning back. There's a fella in the marathon class that I'm taking who is 62 years old. He's ran the marathon in previous years (just last year), and after seeing him, and knowing he can do it, I don't have any doubts about it now. Not that it's going to be easy, but the old guy has given me some real encouragment to go through with this.
So, I'll be sure to post my results if I'm still doing this blog come October.. even if it takes me all day to do! I just hope I finish before they start closing up to go home. :)
