Marathon Training Kinda Crazy

You know you are kind of crazy when the marathon training is what you look forward to the most. The actual completion of the marathon is fun and exciting, however that is the end in a way. The event really is the training. The marathon for most people lasts less than 5 hours of their lives, but the training is the hobby, is the reward, is the pleasure, is the life of a runner.

Each week of marathon training can be a waiting period if you think in terms of it’s still 18 weeks until my marathon, it’s still 10 weeks to my marathon. Personally I think in terms of long run to long run. I can’t wait to get to the next long run as the runs during the week are just too short. Sunday comes and I am off and running both emotionally and literally.

Let me know if you have similar experiences.

  1. I agree 100%, I view the race itself as the party at the end. The real work is in the training, the race is fun!
