7 Things You Should Know before You Run Your First Marathon ...


I recall running my first marathon 13 years ago and it feels like it was yesterday. Looking back, I wish I knew then what I know now about training for a marathon. Now at 33 years old, I have twenty one marathons under my belt and I have personal trained countless clients to complete their first marathon and many others to smash their personal best records with lightning fast times. Let me share with you the things you should know before you run your first marathon:
