Earlier this month I ran my maiden marathon in Hartford, Connecticut. I completed the 26.2 mile course in just less than 4 hours. Last year I ran the half-marathon. I completed it quite comfortably in 1 hour 45 minutes. So, I planned to try the full one this year. Generally, I run 6 miles everyday on the treadmill. Once in a while I go to a trail to run similar or slightly more distances. However, once our daughter was born last June, I struggled to follow the above schedule. Hence, I was hopeful but a bit skeptical whether I would be able to finish!
