My new goal for 2013 is to run a Marathon! I just decided to start training about 6 weeks ago!  I'm planning to register for the Denver Rock 'N Roll Marathon on October 20th.  I decided to follow Coach Jenny's Run/Walk Marathon Training plan because I interval run/walk during longer runs, and I really love her Run/Walk training plan.  I can run solid now for about 8-9 miles without 2-3 minute walking intervals....which is a huge milestone for me!! It's hard to get out for longer runs in the morning because I also work full time, but when I do get up and go running early in the entire day goes much better!!
