I have had the dates of October 13 and 14th on my calendar for awhile. I signed up many months ago to do something I even thought was crazy. The price was going to increase the next day and every time I saw a post about this race I felt this little pull inside of me that wanted to do it. I also had a very encouraging sole sister tell me she thought I should do it with her. I was not sure I was ready for such a task. My fellow sole sister had run a full marathon and I had not. I had run two half marathons and was signing up for something that would double that to 4 not to mention they were back to back. My husband thought I was crazy he was pretty sure I was going to hurt myself. I still decided to sign up and train for it. My plan was to run long runs back to back that did not really happen like I planned. I did follow my 1/2 marathon training plan pretty well and felt like I was prepared to run a good 1/2 marathon----BUT I had to run two 1/2 marathons!
