So, I've got my marathon all picked....the Marine Corps Marathon on 10/30/11.
I've got my training all mapped out...the Hanson brothers less is more plan for first timers.
Registration opens on 2/23. Now the self doubt has set in.
Why do I think I can run 26.2 miles? I've lost so much endurance over this brutal winter. 6.5 miles kicked my butt yesterday. There is no way I could have done that FOUR more times.
First timers...how do you keep away the feelings of self doubt?
