I ran my first marathon yesterday! It was a super hot, super hilly course, but with really good views over the city. I saw people I follow on Instagram (which was weird, like seeing a celebrity) and I have never known community spirit like it. I learnt some stuff over the whole 26.2 miles, mostly while my brain was screaming at me to stop.
I was going to do a series of posts about marathon training but quelle surprise, I forgot completely, so here is my one post about my upcoming first marathon the day before I run it. I’m hoping to do a post race article but then again I hope to do a lot of things so don’t believe me too much.
I go running somewhat a lot of the time. But I’m not a ‘good’ runner. I don’t look like a runner. I don’t go out in short shorts and a sports bra and I don’t run particularly fast and not particularly far. And I wanted to potentially write more than one post about running when you’re not fast, or super fit, or can run super far, about how rubbish running can be when you’re not a professional, and how good it can actually be too.
