I found a great site called Daily Mile. It's a great resource to track your mileage, how you're feeling, calories burned, etc.
Isn't that great? You can also track other activities too: swimming, cycling, yoga, weightlifting, and even some more obscure activities like rock climbing or CrossFit. Pretty cool.
Right now I am following Hal Higdon's Novice Marathon Training Schedule. It's pretty straightforward and a good place to start if you are thinking about running your first full marathon. There are plenty of other sites out there with great training plans, as well. I also encourage you to check out Runner's World for all things running! Keep checking back for new ones!
NUTRITIONCheck out my post on eating right while training for a marathon! Lots of great stuff there!
TUNESNow that you've got a training plan it's time to make a playlist for you iPod. I've created a youtube channel with what's being pumped into my ears. Check it out for some inspiration!
