The 2008 L.A. Marathon is going to be my first one ever so on top of being excited, I'm really really nervous. Run 26.2 miles? Are you kidding me? Eesh! It'll probably be the meanest thing I've ever done to my body so I'm going to need all the encouragement I can get when I'm feeling like giving up at Mile 19. In fact I'm going to go out on a limb and say that all marathoners, especially first-timers, luuuuvs it when people come out and cheer us on from the sidelines. We'll have our names on our bibs so please shout them out when we run by. There's something about hearing our names cheered at the top of people's lungs that is so invigorating.
