I've known since December that I was going to sign up for the marathon. I planned all my training through race day and I told everyone that I was going to run it. I've been wearing this headband on runs all winter as a symbol of my intention to sign up. Yet today when I went to register I had to stop for a minute and do a gut check. Was I really ready? I guess I'll find out in 6 months. I filled out the forms and paid my fees. 197 days to race day.
