After careful consideration, I’ve decided to train for and run my first marathon. The Portland Marathon is in October. I’ve decided to use the C25K program as my “conditioning” and then I’ll start my Marathon training after that 8 week program is up. This is the biggest goal I’ve ever set for myself. I’m nervous. I’m scared. But above it all, I’m excited about the journey. I don’t have a time goal, just a “finish it” goal❤️

Smart goal. I had the same goal for my first marathon, which I did in in 6:21:06. What's the finish time limit for the Portland Marathon? I'm training for my ninth marathon--COVID-19 notwithstanding. Some unsolicited advice: My first few marathons, over the years, I got more obsessed with my time. I've gone full circle. I haven't worn a watch when I'm training and running events.
