The date is set for my first attempt at my goal to run the marathon. May 1, 2011. The Orange County marathon will be my day of achievement or my first attempt at the 26.2 miles. Either way I think it is going to be fun.
During the registration process they ask what your expected pace will be. Well I put in for 4 hours and 20 minutes and 4 hours for my brother. This is our first marathon so lets see where our time falls.
My brother has said he thinks this Ironman is going to be easier than he originally thought, recently the pace of the bike has concerned him but I think the pounding of a marathon will also be an awakening. But that is why he factored it in to his training program. To ge ready for full Marathon I found something to help me get ready and asked my brother to join me by framing it as a mystery challenge, (this sunday).
