It's official. Jeff and I are registered for the Philadelphia Marathon on November 20th this coming fall! I ran the half marathon (which is the same course as the full just shorter) and loved it. Jeff and I have always talked about wanting to run a full marathon and decided the time was perfect! Because training is very time consuming, this summer is perfect for us. Jeff has off of school for a month and I will not be working, giving us time to focus on our long runs. We will finally be able to cross this goal off of our bucket list!
Each week I will dedicate a post about our training update. We will begin this week so that we are in perfect shape for these 26.2 miles! The furthest I have ever run is the 13 miles for the half last year, so my body has some work to do. I cannot wait to accomplish this with my husband by my side. Wish us luck!

I had a blast running with my two best friends, but am even more excited to do this with Jeff!
Jeff and I have a few goals for this race which we still are finalizing. My goal with my friends last year was simply not to walk-we wanted to run the entire thing to the best of our ability. However because I have improved as a runner this past year, Jeff and I will most likely set some time goals for ourselves!
Are you running any upcoming races? If not, you should really join in on the Philly fun! There is also a half marathon and 8k the same morning. Won't you join us? :)
