I decided this year that I want to run a marathon. I am going to try to get into the St. George marathon because I hear that it is the best there is. However, there is a lot of competition to get into this marathon. There is a drawing to see which people that have applied actually get in to run it. The cap is at 7400 runners, and that many people register to run it within just an hour of going live.
At the moment I am not prepared to run this race at all. The race takes place in October, and the registration closes May 7th. I have a lot of running to do if I want to be involved in this run, and I need to start working on it right now. I found a cool website that is helping me to make the choice on which treadmill to buy (It is far too cold outside still to run out there right now!) Plus, I have always kind of liked treadmills.. As weird as that sounds. After I decide which treadmill to get, I will be following a strict workout schedule so that I can be totally prepared for the marathon by the time October rolls around. I decided that I am going to go ahead and buy all of my workout equipment over the next few weeks, because if I wait until May, when I find out whether or not I am accepted, it won’t give me enough time to follow my strict daily regimen.
My entire life I have had hopes that I would be able to run a marathon. It’s on my “bucket list” so to speak, and I figure this year is as good as any to get it done! Even if I’m not picked to run it this year, at least I will have some really cool equipment and feel ready to run it… And then we will shoot for next year!
