Thanks for stopping by. Congrats on this goal! Which event are you going to run?

I am going to assume that you have your training well in hand and simply suggest that you read lots of race reports because they capture the essence(s) of the experience.

Here is my first one at Portland in 2006 and a few from some of my friends, first and/or second time marathoners: PuddleThumper's Eugene Report and GVB's Portland and Vancouver BC. The Run And Go Marathon Forum has an amazing amount of advice and discussion of races and training.

I wish you luck and hope to hear how things go.
