I took the plunge and registered for the Hartford Half Marathon in October.  I know myself and I know if I don’t have a goal I won’t push myself.

I also got a friendly call from Reality, and was notified that trying to do a Half Marathon and a Marathon during my first year of running was a bad idea.  That said, I now have to put together a real training plan.  I have it worked out, but I still want to polish it up and merge it with my wife’s yet to be made plan.
