my bro in law, Jordan, has ran 2 marathons within the past 6 months. if i think i'm crazy, i know he is!! ha! anyway, he received a book by Jeff Galloway about marathons and marathon training that he used and said really worked.
so i went to joseph beth this past weekend and got Jeff Galloways "Book on Running" where he gives training programs for a 5k, 10k, and a half marathon. he has several different programs on each one based on whether you just want to finish it or if you want to get a certain time on your race.
i've read and skimmed the book and so far it is a great book and seems very doable. i showed it to my friend marci and she decided she thought she could do it too. (she's also completed the couch to 5k program) so off we go! training has started!
