Today, the Marine Corps Marathon opened their lottery system for entry into this year's marathon in October. And I was one of the first to put my bid in at noon when registration opened!
What this means for Adventures with FitNyx: Brace yourself, lots of marathon training posts are coming. I'm hoping to document my running and cross training more thoroughly on paper, which will translate to more check-in posts about my actual training and what I'm sure will be many posts about the overall experience of training for a marathon. I've also got a few nutrition and recovery products to try over the course of the next few months as I experiment with what will work best for me on race day, so you'll probably see some reviews too. And I'm also hoping to have some guest blogs from some of my friends who are old pros at 26.2, sharing advice and experience from their journeys! All in all, it's likely to be a very interesting year - and I'd be honored to have you join me for it!
What was your first marathon like? Which did you run? If you haven't yet, do you think you ever will, and which race would you choose for your first? Any early advice for me?
