Running a marathon is an experience that is difficult to put into words. For many it represents a significant experience in their lives, one that they will never forget, as it changes them.
As we approach and enter another Melbourne Marathon campaign, I'd like to share some of my favourite quotes about marathon running that help to describe the physical and mental challenges of the most famous 26.2 mile (42.195km) race. These will inspire, motivate, or maybe frighten you a little.
If you're up for the challenge, now is the time to commit. But be warned, it may just change your life!
I could keep going, but better stop there. This stuff gives me tingles, butterflies as most who have gone through the same experience can attest.
It is often said that the hardest part of the marathon is getting through the training, getting to the start line. I couldn't agree more with that statement. That doesn't mean go easy in your training, quite the opposite. That means your training program and how you complete it is vital to your success. This is where many get it wrong, resulting in becoming a non finisher or even worse a non starter. It is very important you get this right from the start.
The objective of a good personalised program is;
1. Get you to the start line in one piece. This means well prepared, with a race plan, and injury free.
2. Allow you to the finish the race feeling strong, elated, and more than a bit tired!
3. Meet your realistic goal race time or perhaps better it.
