Way to Go Amy!!! It's a lot of training, but well worth it. I've mentioned before that I did a marathon with TnT in 1999. Alaska in June. BEAUTIFUL!!
Six of us went out a week before the walk/run and toured around Anchorage. Prior to the training, I did not know a single person doing the marathon so everyone I travelled with was a new friend. It was just the best experience, but the training did me in. Once was enough, but everyone should do at least one marathon in their lifetime. It really is not that difficult.
