My First Marathon Experience — 12 Comments

  1. I’m glad I was able to find this blog. Another great post for anyone looking to take up running, especially for those that want to run marathons or even half. I am in the very early stages of running so I am not marathon caliber yet but, the lessons you have learned and share are going to be a giant help. Also reading and putting my future self in those shoes makes me want to go run more often and longer so it isn’t as far of a wait to get there. Thanks again!

    • Joel,

      I tried to follow your blog but the page didn’t seem to like my wordpress address. I’m brand new to blogging and have no clue how the mechanics work. Do you know what I need to do?




  2. I love the part where you wrote that running is not about the out running/beating the person next to you…. it is about beating yourself and your PR. Very true, such a solitary sport. And when you get that PR— lawdddy, it is a good feeling!

    • Thank you for your comments. Several people have commented on that idea. It is gratifying to know that something that I’m writing resonates with people. There is always the concern I’m off on a tangent and spewing dribble! Thanks again!

  3. Kudos to you from another fellow runner. I’ve done a marathon once a year (but had to skip this year due to a surfing injury) and it’s really great to get together with hundreds of others no matter what cultural, religious, ethnic, etc. background…and just run for fun!

    • Frances,
      Absolutely. If it’s not fun why do it? There are often moments, even hours, when a marathon is not fun. But somehow looking back on all of those moments, it’s hard to put into words. I just look forward to the next one and always feel great about taking on the challenge and then getting ready for the next one. I hope I can do this untill i’m an old man.
