Take It and Run Thursday: Marathon Mania
It's our way to bring together the knowledge of all of us ordinary runners. It's the virtual equivalent to putting our virtual heads together. Even though many of us aren't elite athletes, coaches or authors, it doesn't mean that we haven't earned a well deserved PhD in running. Whether you are starting out, have 50 years of running under your belt or somewhere in between - all of us have lessons learned that make us wiser and better runners.
Today's theme is .... Marathon Mania.
It's time to get serious about marathon season. Over the last few weeks, there has been alot of chatter and excitement in picking fall marathons and starting marathon training plans. Let's share information! What's your marathon training plan? What have you learned from past marathons? Which marathon(s) are you running? What races are your using to build up to the big day? What are your special plans? Whatever it is about your marathon - share with other Loungers. And if you don't have a marathon planned but have one in the past - PLEASE - share your wisdom. The marathon is a distance of constant learnings.
Just post your name and the title/topic of your post in the first spot and the link to your post in the second spot. And then go to work helping your fellow runners!
Next Week's Theme is ... "It was sooo obvious..." Have you ever had a problem with your running, maybe completely frustrated with your running, and then realize there is a very simple solution? Maybe you think, "That was obvious!" or "I know better!" or "If I would have listened to myself I could have solved this sooner". For next week's theme, share a lesson learned or solution for your running as well as the "obvious" problem. Sometimes all it takes is someone reading another runners problem and diagnosis in order to easily fix their own running challenges.
