So I ran XC and one year in college. Was never anything special, my best 5K times were high 19 min range and currently they are in the 24 min range. I still run 2-3 5Ks/year but i dont really run outside of those. I did my first 1/2 marathon last year on a whim (3 weeks and very little training) but finished a semi-respectable 1:51 time. I realized I enjoyed the longer run much more than the 5Ks, being able to relax instead of feeling like a long sprint. So I decided to sign up for a full marathon. It is March 9th. I've done 18 miles before, though it was several years ago. Just curious if anyone else has done one and what your experience was like.
