Am I really doing this?


Ladies & Gentleman.

I recieved an e-mail yesterday from my cousin Stephanie. She was wanting to rally troops for the April 24, 2010 Nashville Country Music Marathon.

Let me give everyone a little background. I have always had a burning desire to run a marathon. I like to run because I like the way it makes me feel, but I am in no way fast nor a long runner. I never said it outloud because I didn't want to let myself down.

I am, however, determined. Training begins today. Syd & I are going to work together, thanks to her, she's a girl who runs 10 miles after not having even run in 6 months...yeah ridiculous. SO basically it'll be pushing my endurance & her patience.

I ordered A Non-runners Marathon Trainer off of Amazon yesterday & am anticipating reading it. I've been googling & reading tons of information & trying to get my excitement to outweight my extreme nervousness.

Disclaimer: I am doing this marathon for myself. I am not trying to beat a certain time, though the max I have is 7 hrs. I'd definitely like to get under 6 hrs though.

Goal: Finish.

People currently on the Marathon train:




Mitch (maybe?)


Kristin (if that knee heals!)

Any other takers? Join the train! Party at the Stolworthy home! Free room and board :)



  1. Way to go Rach! You can do it, you can do it!!!!

  2. That's great, Rachel! I think it's good for everyone to experience a marathon once in their life! You'll never forget it! (in a good way) I can tell you what I did to train and a book that I really loved too, if you're interested! Let me know!

  3. Be careful and don't overdo as you train. No injuries please! Love all of you that are taking on the challenge!

  4. I'm up for the 1/2 marathon, but that's the extent of this old grannies fortitude! Plus training for a marathon would definitely cramp my tennis mojo!! I have to keep my priorities straight after all...

  5. That's right Aunt Julie! I'm so happy you are going to do it! hoorah
