26.2 fundraiser miles

Y'all know I'm not much of a salesperson, so I'm having a hard time with the idea of selling my cause, but I signed up to train for (and run? what was I thinking?!?) 26.2 miles to raise funds for playground repairs and active/fitness education.

WHAT was I thinking? (And how did I survive?)

So... just learned I have an opportunity to run a fall marathon with a charity group.

In weighing pros/cons, I looked back at my 2006 training plan and wondered WTF I was doing -- and how the hell I survived. Sure, I did a 21 miler, and a couple of 18s... And my time wasn't even awful (4:45) on race day.

But -- and I wish I were kidding about this -- I was running (no joke) 2-3 mile runs, a couple of times a week mid-week, and calling that a training plan!


Needless to say, I'm in a much better position now than I was 10 years ago. Is it time for another crack at 26.2?????

Someone please talk me out of this? (Or maybe into it?)
