Congratulations! You are now registered for Callaway Gardens Marathon."
That, in of itself, is not surprising.
What is surprising is that this particular marathon is in about 5 weeks.
The reality is that if I want to be an awesome Fifty State Marathon person, I need to start doing crazy things like running marathons 5 weeks apart and running 3 marathons in a year.
So on January 25th, I'll be running in the Callaway Gardens Marathon and knocking another state off my list.
Since this is a whole new level of insanity for me, I don't really know what I'm doing in terms of training. I'm using Hal Higdon's 4 week multiple marathon training schedule and repeating one of the middle weeks for the 5th week.
I'm adding another day of running, going from 4 days to 5 and hoping that I don't fall down into a tired, whiny, crying mess. I probably will cry at some point but that's ok - if running a whole bunch of marathons was easy everyone would do it.
I'm nervous. I'm excited. and I'm already tired. This is going to be awesome.
