The 2013 Grand Rapids Marathon will be my 1st Marathon. It seems like a dream. But the reality has set in , as my training is nearing the taper point. My 20 mile run was last weekend , and was happy with a finish time of 2:59. I ran with the Marathon Staff today , and am looking forward to the next 2 weeks of taper. I have projected finish time of 3:50. I know they say to just go out and have fun, and don't worry about time on the 1st Marathon, but I am feeling good on a Sub-4 hr Marathon.
I will post more information as it is available.
