But yes, it's true. 2011 Pittsburgh Marathon, here I come! All 26.2 glorious, hilly miles. So why the decision to run? Simple. I know I can do it. Call it stubbornness, but there's no logical reason I can't run a marathon. With some solid training, good nutrition, frequent ice baths and my head mentally in the game, nothing's going to stop me. The fact that my husband is training for the race and is convinced I will beat him adds some fuel to the fire, too.
