The start

This blog will document my physical, emotional, mental and perhaps spiritual journey as I train for the Bass Pro Marathon on Nov. 2. I'm following the John Bingham / Jenny Hadfield plan and am trying to trust it will get me to the finish line!

Right now I'm terrified about the thought of training through summer heat. This will be my first full summer running, and I'm finding I much prefer the snow! I did order a new fuel belt (since my camelpak needs help being cleaned!), so hydration shouldn't be an issue. 

I'm hoping to shed a few pounds these first few weeks of training. I was sent the wrong size World Vision racing singlet in April and desperately want to be able to wear it for this race.
