I've had a few other bloggers come to me with some fun ideas lately (the new blogger feature, upcoming post swaps, etc.) and started thinking it would be fun to initiate some new idea myself.
One of the main reasons for starting this blog was to find others who were training for a marathon for inspiration, sympathy, and support. Another reason was to find more experienced runners who could give me lots of tips and information.
So, I'm wondering if my fellow first-time marathoners in training (or first time half-marathoners in training) would want to do a newbie marathoner club? I don't really know what all we could do, but just a way to track our experiences. Let's say (for now) anyone training for one by the end of the year?
I'm thinking if others are interested, I could do a post a week with features on what others have accomplished that week, people who may need encouragement, etc. I've seen lots of other clubs/groups floating around the blog world but don't think I've come across this one. We could do some different question/answer type things too. Like, how we picked the race, the training plan, etc.
So, if interested, let me know in either a comment or e-mail. If others are interested, I'll keep thinking. If you have any ideas, let me know. Pass this along to any others who are first time half or full marathoners by the end of the year too. Thanks!
