Ok, people. I need your help.
Tomorrow is the big day.
What day? Pittsburgh Marathon Early Registration Day.
That’s where you come into play. Last May, I did the Pittsburgh half marathon. It was my very first half marathon experience, and I finished in 2:09.00.
Quite an accomplishment for myself, though for others that is extremely slow .
Now the tough part comes. I have to decide by tomorrow at midnight whether I want to sign up for the full or the half marathon for next May. I get a lower registration fee if I sign up tomorrow, and I need to make my decision quickly!
I need all of the advice I can get. Do I do the half again to try and get a better time? Do I take on a big challenge and just go for the full?
Can you tell me about your experiences with the half and the full?
For those of you “non-runners” that turned runners and ran/walked either the half or the full, what are your thoughts?
Is my little body capable of 26.2 miles? Will I die?! (<—Not seriously die, but will I be able to make it?!)
