There is so much to learn and experience in the world of running. Which is why you're going to find so much in these pages to completely make you want to unplug and go for a run. (You know that feeling too, huh? :))
Just look at what running is.
It's peaceful runs out in the beauty of nature. It's running for the sheer joy of running. It’s training not only your body but also your mind. It's the feeling of accomplishment, passion and discovery.
It's meeting new people and making new friends, it's anxious pre-race nights and thrilling early mornings.
It's blisters and sores, it's old shoes and new. It's starting lines and finish lines and everything in between.
It's the difference between feeling good and feeling that we need to do something, give something. It's being able to eat that fifth chocolate chip cookie.
It's bringing out the best in yourself so that you can give others your best.
It's fun, it's exhausting, it's complicated, it's exciting.
It's hard but it is worth every ounce of effort.
Trust me, you won't regret your decision to run a marathon whether its your first or one hundreth. If you put in the time and the effort you will reap the rewards and prove to yourself that you can do anything.
Remember that as Benjamin Franklin said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”.Commit yourself to your running and the marathon and use his adage in a positive light, “Successfully preparing is preparing for success.”
You will succeed if you train properly. And in doing so you will find an incredible outlet that you can enjoy for many years to come.
So lace up your running shoes, hit the road and discover or keep discovering the joys of running and marathon training!
Time to be epic!
