Marathon???

I follow Another Mother Runner on FaceBook.  I saw the following post earlier today:
http://anothermotherrunner.com/2014/04/09/26strong-looking-two-wannabe-marathoners/comment-page-14/#comment-893845

If you don't click on it....basically it says that the ladies will be choosing 2 runner mothers to train for their first marathon & run it with the authors of Run Like a Mother (Dimity McDowell & Sarah Bowen Shea). 
I've been trying to think about what I need to do with my life....I have a hard time keeping the running going without some sort of challenge or motivation.  I need someone to keep on top of me....hmmm...I think this would be perfect.  Not sure about 26.2 miles, but everyone would do it if it were that easy...right???  I'm just not sure if I can get myself fast enough to not have to spend the entire day running/walking.....

I'm not sure if I could do this totally on my own....I just don't know if I should just stick with 5Ks....not sure I have much of a chance (there are a ton of entries & there were a few tear jerker entries)...

Here is what I posted:

I need a challenge.  I have completed 2 half marathons with the last one 2 years ago.  Since then, I have been run/walking off & on.  If I have a goal & some help, I can complete a task.  I did Zooma Texas in 2012 with an awesome mentor who kept me on track.  I’m turning 42 later this year & would love to have another motivation/challenge.  I have 2 boys (7 & 4) & a hubby with a crazy work schedule.  I have done runs up to 9 miles pushing my boys.  I know that I need to work on speed, but I have time to do that, if I am chosen for this.  I have never run/walked a marathon & would love this opportunity. I would love this opportunity to be able to tell friends & family that I’m going to run a marathon….this would solidify the fact that I’m a little bonkers in my later years…lol!! I’m in Texas & have a gym in my neighborhood where I can dreadmill/elliptical/lift weights to help the training. I have some great running ladies in the area that I can reach out to for some help….PLEASE CHOOSE ME!!!


They will announce the winners on April 16....
