Welcome Joelle!!! Sounds like you are the type to give 100% in whatever you do- so be prepared to have a blast and see your hard work pay off!
I started running about a year and a half ago after my college girlfriends convinced me to sign up for the Disney Princess half marathon. Even as the least enthusiastic runner, I took my training the most seriously. After crossing my first finish line, I was hooked. I have since run 4 half’s with 4 more on the calendar throughout the rest of 2017. I joined the program because I signed up for my first full marathon, taking place in January 2018, and I need help preparing myself for the jump from 13.1 to 26.2, I am relatively new to the area, so I am also looking forward to meeting other like minded people who will help push me physically and mentally.
