Beginner Marathon Runners

Running your first marathon is nerve racking - the training looks daunting, and the thought of running for several hours, non-stop just seems absurd. But the marathon holds an allure that draws hundreds of thousands to take it on each year.

This is the Tribe to share your thoughts, your plans, training advice, and of course to share those pre-race nerves!

Kevin G and Lurdes A encouraged this.
