WHAT---I just registered for my FIRST marathon!

I just registered for my first marathon---WHAT have I done (I haven't even run my first 1/2 yet---that run is scheduled to take place April 17th).

I saw an advertisement in this month's Runner's World for the Lehigh Valley Marathon.  I grew up in Hunterdon County only a hop, skip, and jump away from Lehigh, so I was intrigued.  I went online to check it out and it looks like a perfect marathon for me---flat course, pretty scenery, ---did I mention the flat course:)

I figured that I would need a new goal after completing the 1/2 and this run looks perfect. Any other Racy Runners up for the challenge?

In the meantime, I need to focus on the 1/2---I have my first 11 mile run planned for tomorrow am along the boardwalk.  Although I ran 10.5 miles 2 weeks ago, I have only run a mile or two on the boardwalk surface---I hope I can hang tough.  Thankfully I will have the ocean for my ice bath when done:)
