Let's see what I'm saying toward the beginning of August... :)
Sadie and I did a mostly asphalt loop that sent us by the university's Bear Research, Conservation, and Education Center. There were three grizzly cubs running around the pen. I took a photo with my cell phone but it didn't turn out. Then we ran by the Cattle Research Center where the most notible thing was the stench. Dinner anyone? Home and back: 7 miles.
A fellow blogger directed me to marathontraining.com. There seems to be pretty good information for first time marathoners. I think I may be getting to the point where I need to structure my training a little bit more instead of just running what I feel like when I feel like. I suppose I need more of a plan than just "Hey, I'm going to run a marathon in October. Yippee!"
