My first marathon!I was going to wait until next week to do this post, but I have decided I can't wait! The time is now. I need to digest it all. Write it down. Think about it. Sleep on it. Get it in my head before all my head can do is panic! This is where you come in, this is where I want your help.
I want your best tips!
I know I have read a million tips on running a marathon.
All I can think of is how excited and terrified I was for my first half marathon three years ago and halfway through I was swearing off the distance and cussing myself for getting talked into running 13.1 miles. I have of course ran three more since then and have another one, (maybe two) planned this year. It is my favorite distance to race now.
This is twice the distance and I already have at least one more planned. (maybe two).
I don't want to be swearing off the race distance until at least mile 20.
