This morning was the 115th running of the Boston Marathon. The winner crossed the finish line at 2:03:02. How cool is that?!
Wanna know a secret? I’ve always wanted to run a marathon. The catch? I’m not a runner….I’ve probably never run more than a mile at one time. I’m not even sure how running a marathon ended up on my bucket list, except that I think it would be an amazing accomplishment. And even though I’m not a runner – one day I want to run the Walt Disney World marathon that takes you through all the parks.
A few years ago, I set my goals small and decided a 5k was a great way for a non-runner to get their feet wet. I even went as far as buying fancy, running shoes and a “how-to” book for non-runners in need of a training schedule. I think I lasted two weeks. I really wish I had stuck with it. Maybe I’ll pick it up again now that the seasons are changing and it’s starting to warm up outside!
Are you a runner? What advice do you have for a novice like myself?
And…the most important question of the day…have you ever run a marathon? Tell us all about it!
