This is how it starts. I actually registered for the 2011 Edinburgh Marathon. A full marathon has always been the goal for me, but various "life issues" have always gotten in the way. Stuff like inexperience, injury, desire to travel & not run, not training, etc. The usual stuff that you convince yourself is more important.
So here I am. In for a penny, in for a pound. (which is funny because I had to pay in pounds sterling!)
