  1. OH it’s game on now. San Diego? May 31st? You must be feeling confident in your travel availability and knee. That’s fantastic!

    I am SO HAPPY for you to have picked a marathon finally! It’s going to be warm and flat. Good call. any registration anxiety? it took me about a week to get over the registration anxiety from the B2B. I’m feeling better about it now.

    I found my training plan at http://www.halhigdon.com he’s got a ton of them.

    Go amy go!

    • I am about ready to throw up, I’m so nervous. I am suddenly filled with doubt & anxiety.

      (I also have enough airline miles for a free flight, so I’m not worried about that aspect of it.)

      I got the go ahead from my PT to register.

      I hope I don’t have butterflies for the next 5 1/2 months.

  2. This sounds like fun! If I was going to run a marathon I wouldn’t mind doiing one in San Diego! 🙂

    • It should be nice!

      I just miss palm trees – we don’t have many in Portland. (You can, however, play ‘spot the displaced Californian/Floridian’ by driving around and looking for sad little stunted palms.)
