Not an Official marathoner yet.

My dream to become a marathoner is near. 42 km ? I never run such a long distance in my life before and I guess I seldom clock that mileage in a week during my training.
I'll be going to SG tomorrow and will run Singapore marathon on 7th December 2008. Looking back , I still remember a year ago , I signed up for Chin Woo biathlon , my first race ever, 7 km was a very high mileage for me that time and worried that I won't be able to complete the 7km run. A year has pass and I finally learned how to pace myself .
I'm not sure whether I will go again this year, I might want to cycle on that day.
