CIM stands for the California International Marathon.  It is held on the first Sunday of December.  This year, I’m training for it, and I’ve already signed up; so there is no turning back.

I’ll be logging my training on this blog to highlight key experience that may help other beginners get through their own challenge of conquering a marathon.

Note that I’m already almost one month into my training plan.  It has not been perfect, meaning I’ve missed some days of cross training already, but fortunately, I still have about three months to go.

Lately though, I’ve had some rough and sluggish feeling in the morning.  I don’t feel very fast, and my feet are starting to get sore.

In the next post, I’ll tell you what I do before and after a short training run.  When you are as old as me, these things really matter a lot.
