My First Marathon, California Internation Marathon

Until last Spring, I had never had the desire to run a marathon. It felt it was a ridiculous distance to run and in retrospect, I still think the same thing. Last year, 13.1miles was as far as I wanted to run, but when I started to see quite a few internet friends sign up for California International Marathon in December, I started to play with the idea running farther than 13.1 miles. With a little bit of peer pressure and support from my boyfriend (who would have to put up with all my training), I signed up.
