Wow Sharon Check you out! You'll do great - if 18 now doesn't seem like a big deal, you will be fine! I hope to be running again soon!

The Joy is in the Journey!

emoticon , Sharon-sorry I'm a little late with the greetings!

Judging from how fast you can do a 1/2, you have a great base for a full. It's just a bit more painful! ;-)

Good luck!

Hi all! I'm Sharon, long time runner, first time marathoner. I have been running for about 15 years and have finished something like 15 half marathons, but for some reason, the full marathon distance has always intimidated me. With the support and encouragement of my fellow Sparky runners, I took the plunge and signed up for my first marathon on January 31, 2010! I am up to 18 miles in my training and so far, so good! I don't know what I was worried about!

Looking forward to sharing the journey!
