Default Marathon?

I am going to prepare for a *marathon, I've decided. I have one picked out, (Mississauga Marathon, May 12-14, 2006: excellent excuse to travel again in a few months) but anyone have any additional recommendations?

Does anyone want to train for a marathon together (well, not literally together, but like start a thread or something?)?

Yes, this belongs on the fitness board, but this board gets a bit more traffic. I will post it there, too.

*eta: more than likely a half marathon, though!

most people take more than 2 months to train for a marathon especially a full one. it is not impossible and if you already run around 15 miles a day you might only need 2 months. your city will have several different random groups or clubs training together. you would meet up with them in the very early morning or evening and run together. don't worry it is usually strangers but most people do train with family or friends within the larger group. if you have no one locally joining in with their training is a good way to meet people and find a running partner in the same situation. good luck and you will feel very accomplished afterwards.

not much, about a half hour 3 to 4 days a week.

i'm only preparing for a half. i'm thinking of just going to the one in toronto, instead of mississauga as i have a university graduation to attend that weekend that i forgot about...

the toronto marathon is in september.

huh? even for a half marathon that is ambitious for may. not impossible but highly unlikely. I like the september idea much better but i would like to know how you do in may. you can do it if you work very hard and committ but i don't recommend it on just 30 min of running now and only 2 months to train. good luck.
