Permission From the Master

I had the nicest surprise on my run on Wednesday morning! Before I headed out the door I downloaded the last few podcasts from Another Mother Runner. The one I was able to listen to on my three mile run was a Q&A Sarah and Dimity did with Greg McMillan. Imagine my surprise when Dimity asked Greg the question I submitted (and said my name on the podcast)! 

The question was about what the fewest amount of days someone (well, ME) could run while training  for a marathon. To my sheer delight, Greg said 3 or 4 days would be fine! Well, allrighty then. I have permission from the master himself to train at a lower volume for my first marathon!

Okay, clearly I don't need Greg McMillan's permission, but it certainly helps boost my confidence. 

I'm not really sure at what point I should pick out a goal marathon. I am definitely a little gun-shy after registering for Portland 2012 and not being able to run it. I need a local race, maybe something next spring? 

Maybe the Capital City Marathon or Tacoma City Marathon next May?
