Wow....when I logged into Facebook this morning it showed me this picture in my "memories" from 7 years ago today.  

Big D Half-Marathon

This was my first half-marathon and the first organized race I'd been in over 13 years (I'd run some 10Ks in college).   I ran rather slowly.  It took me 2:20:28 to finish, but hey I did it.

This was my "practice race" before my first full marathon that I would go on to run just a few weeks later in support of an awesome charity.   But we will get more into that story in a few weeks.

Anyway, I hadn't planned on posting today, but when I saw this on my timeline I thought I'd share.

Anyone else willing to share their first race below?

While running a marathon is a difficult feat in itself, knowing how to train well for such a long race is often where many runners encounter the biggest challenges.

First, there's getting the balance right between training enough and not over-training. Then there's pace, dehydration, carb-loading and the worry of becoming hyponatremic to consider.
