Run a 20-mile long training run

The 20-mile training run is often the longest run of a marathon runner's training schedule. Completion of it is a good sign that the marathon runner is ready to do the marathon!

Adeline M Run a 20-mile long training run Challenge

Contributorsilver Adeline M Gearing up for my 20-mile run this Saturday! I'm excited but a bit nervous to do it all by myself!

Baldy John - encouraged this.


I know exactly what you mean. I didn't do a 20 mile race but I did just do the Civilian Military Combine Race by myself. It was the hardest race I have ever done. You'll feel amazing when you cross that finish line knowing that you did it by yourself.

Adeline M encouraged this.


Congrats! I'm looking forward to it....It's my last super long training run before the marathon. Ready for tapering! :)


That must be a nice feeling. What got you into running? Especially long distances.
