I'm considering it. I am planning on running the Yakima Canyon Marathon the end of March. It will be my first full. I know I could be ready for the Seattle half by November but am a little worried I'll wind up pushing it and injure myself just when full marathon training begins. emoticon What to do? What to do? I've also thought of having my kids do the kids marathon that weekend.

I would seriously consider doing the half-marathon walk, but I leave for India that day.
