For those that remember, back in 2007, I ran the LA Marathon and it damn near killed me. I trained well for six months, but it was still one hell of a battle.

As I’ve been making plans to train for the Seattle RNR Marathon, I can’t help but see ads for the LA Marathon.

Stadium to Sea. This seems like a MUCH better course than the one I ran a couple years back. I’d really love to run through the more run down and industrial parts of town, but….well….ya know. (Insert thick sarcasm)

The course goes from Dodger Stadium to Santa Monica. Passing through wonderful landmarks. I’d be a fool not to do it.

I’d hesitated in the past because I wanted to take some time to “pre-train”, but in reality, I was only delaying it.

It’s time to get started. My first step, is to find/create a plan for myself.

A training schedule. An eating schedule. A social schedule. I MUST make this work for me. Destiny calls.

I’m a marathoner. It’s in my blood and in my lungs. #3 awaits.
