I am running the London Marathon this year (2009) to raise funds for Asthma UK.
I suffered a major Asthma attack in 2007 which was 50-50 Life or death so I thought I would do something to raise money for this cause.
I have never done a Marathon before - have ran a half marathon...
That guy is Inspiring. I want to eventually hike across the Coastal Mountains (British Columbia), over Grouse, Cypress, and north from there. First, I have to work on strengthening my joints and start training.
I'm getting ready for my first full distance marathon. In a little over 4 months I will run Stockholm Marathon for the first time! I haven't started running outdoors yet because there's still snow where I live, but I'm running 6 miles on the treadmill two or three times a week...

I am not sure if I will get a normal place in the 2010 London Marathon or not but I have a Charity place lined up if not so I will definitely being doing it.
So I have started training for it. I love running, its great to just have a think to yourself or listen to some music.
I am following Hal Higdon's plan Intermediate I at halhigdon.com. I have 2 more weeks until the marathon, and I'm really excited! I've already done all of my long runs (2 20 milers) so it's just basically waiting time now (besides staying in shape until the marathon...
I can't run a mile yet but next week I start my training. In 2 months I'll be able to run three miles. I got 3 years to go till I can enter the Boston Marathon. In 3 years I'll be able to run 26 miles and I'll win. I will be determined and I will run and win.
