Just curious if anyone here is doing the training runs at Garden of the Gods with PPRR? I want to start going to those. I'll have to start in the slowest group for a while until I get into better shape! Just hoping to meet some people and have fun.

It's my 1st marathon too - I'm hoping for no more than 4 hours to finish given that it is my 1st marathon....I agree on the nerves but then I always get them before any race except the 5k's LOL

Weather might not be ideal, but as long as it's not raining hard, I'll be at MVP south (parking lot west of bridge where Cache la Poudre turns to Mesa and Glen) at 5:30 to do nueromuscular and dynamic warm-ups before the Jack Quinn's run. Come and join me!

I am doing the marathon as well. It is my first. Kinda nervous, but in a good way.

I also had a wonderful time at xterra Saturday. Was wondering if anyone was doing rocknroll this weekend.
