Welcome to the team!

It's not as crazy as it sounds. The only difference between a full and a longer race is you just keep running longer :-) If you can run multiple races in a year you'll be fine. Don't worry about the weight - pushing 50 plus miles a week on your feet generally takes care of things (in my experience). I had trouble keeping weight on at 70+ miles a week.

Just keep training to build up your confidence and enjoy the journey.

My name is Rebecca and i have been running for about 10 ish years. Only long distance running for probably 5 or 6. I have completed a few halfs and 4 fulls...3 being the in the last 12 months. I am currently training for Cowtown Marathon Feb 26, 2012 and i am sure a few others in 2012...with a BIG crazy goal of the Rocky Racoon 50 miler in Texas in Feb 2013. even saying it sounds rediculous but exciting ;)
i am a homeschool mom to Layla (17) & Zakary (14) & I live in Fort Worth, Texas.
i am about 15 pounds over what i want to be when the 50 miler comes, so by the grace of God and wise eating i hope to lose that and become more efficient running. I am a rather slow, but steady runner and that is fine with me, i just to gain more endurance.

Look forward to gaining wisdome from y'all!
