I would love to hear about it. I would like to know how long you have trained and what race you have picked for your first attempt.

I completed my first marathon in October of last year, the Nike Women's Marathon in San Francisco. I trained with Team in Training benefiting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It was sooo much fun. We began training towards the last part of May and the marathon was October 21st. So we trained for about 4 months. And I had never even run before!! They are an awesome program that can take anyone from ground zero to marathon finisher! Not any real reason I chose Nike but when I found out you get a Tiffany & Co. necklace at the finish, it just became all the more worth it. TNT has a walk team, run team, and then you can do a walk/run combo if you want, which is what I did. It took me about 6 1/2 hours to complete and I will admit that I was hurtin when done, but man, what an accomplishment!!! If you have any questions or would like more words of encouragement, just let me know! Good luck on whatever you choose.
