My brother and I will be participating in our first marathon in 30 days. I’m not quite sure how my brother is preparing for the event, but I know that I am going to be devoting a large amount of time to running over the next 30 days. I want to make sure that I can complete the full marathon running the entire way.
When we ran the Rose Bowl Half Marathon in February, I completed the entire run, but knew that I would not have lasted any longer. I actually thought about stopping at around the 11 mile mark, but was able to push through it to continue running. I knew I only had 2 more miles to go to complete the half marathon. But, I think mentally I would have stopped knowing that I would have had to run another 15 miles before I could stop.
I’m excited but nervous about our upcoming marathon. I know that I will not be as prepared as I would like to be, but I am going to try my best to get in the best shape I can by then. I am officically starting my marathon training today and would love some company. If anyone is interested in running daily with me I would be more than happy to have you along.
