"The Biggest Loser"
Have you caught an episode of the biggest loser lately? I rarely watch it, but, whenever I do, I am so amazed at what these people are able to do! Sometimes I watch thinking - could I even do that?!
I have always wanted to run a marathon. Two of my best friends had already signed up for the Disney Marathon in January, but I was resistant, thinking that it would at least take a year to train for a marathon right?! Wrong!
Since I have been a pretty active runner already - but usually nothing over 4-5 miles at a time- most training programs suggest a 16-18 week training schedule. I found Hal Higdon's marathon training guide on the web and will train as a novice.
There are so many things to learn and so many things to do before the big day. One thing I will keep in mind is that if the contestants on the biggest loser can run a marathon at the end of their big feat, well then so can I! 133 days till the big race! Just do it!
