So, a few months ago my friend Katie was in town, and she was reminiscing about last year's Marine Corps Marathon, during which I was deployed to Iraq. She was debating signing up again this year. I said "I'll do it if you do it." That was about the worst thing I could have said. So, the next week I signed up. Now I need to train for a marathon... I've never run a marathon. A half marathon, about a year and a half ago. This is going to be interesting.
