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).

Wish us luck on the Marathon and if you want to enter it with us feel free or maybe try the half marathon or 5km run.

  1. Just browsing through your site in preparation for my “interview”. You wimps!! You cannot possibly set a target time of over 4 hours. Even girls – like me! set target times for UNDER 4 hours. C’mon guys you can do better than that!

    • Liz, look at you calling us out.

      Well, you see, we are novices . . . to be honest with you, I wouldn’t even know what a good time was . . . so, I’m glad my brother got to fill out those times.

      I thought that 4 hours was super fast, but I’m glad you called us a bunch of wimps . . . You have challenged our manhood and we will always defend that . . . so, even though I completed a half marathon in 2:05, I’ll try and complete this marathon in under 4 hours . . . Just hope that my knees can take the beating.

      So, I read about your times and wanted to ask you what you’re best time for a marathon was? I think we are just going to have to try and beat that.

    • I like to say I really appreciate everybody who follows the running brothers but I am not sure about that after your comment. Thanks Liz.

      It kinda takes the wind out of my sails. I am truely just hoping to finish and time isn’t that important to me. Good for you shooting for under 4 hours and it sounds like your training is going well. Good luck in Paris!

      Have you had any luck finding a way to get into some bike training.
