Marathon

[ #29584 ]
I just signed up to run in the Chicago Marathon. Suddenly, I feel a little tinge of buyers remorse :)

  • I never had the guts to sign-up for a marathon, I have only participated in a half-marathon. I just had a look at my old journal entries about running and right now I really feel like going running, the weater is good and tomorrow it will rain... too bad I do not have any old Perl t-shirts laying around, which I could mail you - a runner always runs out of t-shirts :)

    I will see if I can locate some t-shirts for you, just mail me your size and physical address (jonasbn at gmail dot com).
    • I've done one before... Little Rock 2003. Since then I've made excuses every year. The marathon isn't too bad, but it is like a part-time job training for it.
  • I want to run a 5K this summer, that will be a marathon for me. Although, I am going to the doctor this afternoon, my knee (I had acl surgery on) keeps swelling up. Hopefully nothing serious. You'll do fine. Finishing a marathon is impressive in my book.
    • 5k's are a lot of fun, though the ACL is bad news. Maybe we should have a YAPC 5k.... hrm, on second thought, that probably wouldn't go over well at all :)
  • I've run 5 half-marathons over the last year and a half, including 1 last weekend in Cincinnati. I've yet to finish the 13.1 miles and think, "I wish I was doing 13.1 more." ;)

    Never the less, I'm thinking of taking the plunge and trying the whole thing in September. I'll probably go back to halfs, but then I'd be able to say I did it.

    Good luck.
