This week over at Runner's Lounge they are talking about the marathon.
"The marathon is an obsession. It has to be."~ Mark Bloom
There's something about 26.2 miles that totally intrigues me. I have done it 11 times and I am still in awe with the experience, from the excitement of signing up to the feeling of accomplishment and relief as I cross the finish line. I love the energy that is in the air pre-race, talking with other runners, the anticipation I feel as I embark on the adventure, which is always the same, but yet a bit different each time. I love pushing myself to the limit and realizing I can accomplish anything.
"Completing a marathon is a feeling that you can't buy. You have to earn it. The experience is what you make of it. The camaraderie is awesome."~Dan Morihiko
If you have read my blog for any length of time, you know that St. George is my favorite marathon. This year my plan was to run at least 12 marathons. Although our move will put a slight glitch in that goal, I am still planning to run 5 or 6.
The 40 by 40 is still in the works! Anyone know a good sponsor? ( :
