Hi everyone! I've decided that I would like to try running a half-marathon this year and eventually, see if I can push myself to run a full marathon. There are so many lovely trails in the DC area and I want to take advantage of that. I'm not much of a runner, but I want to really challenge and push myself. I feel so inspired by reading about seemingly unlikely people who actually go out there and do it. I've gotten a few books and will order the proper shoes soon. I'm thinking about joining a running club in the DC area to help motivate me. I wanted to know if anyone here has run either a half or full marathon? I would love to read about your experiences and how you've trained for it. Thanks!
