Take It and Run Thursday: Marathon Tips

Take_it_and_run_thursday_2 Welcome to Take It and Run Thursday! 

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 ....How to Conquer the Marathon in 26 words (or less).  Share your advice for how to finish the marathon in 26 words or less - 1 for every mile.   And if you are doing a half, then you can share how to conquer the half marathon in 13 words or less.      Everyone is welcome to join in!  Put your own spin on it.  Drop off your advice or 26 words of encouragement if you have done a marathon, watched a marathon, or about to run your first or hundredth.   

Just fill in your name/title of your post and your URL below.

Next weeks theme is .... Life Lessons Learned From Running.    This week's topic idea is from our Lounge friend, bvccollins.  A frequent TIaRT and Lounge contributor, Ben passed along this theme and we thought it was a great topic for this time of year as many of us have amassed many running lessons and life lessons through training and racing. 

And if you have ideas of TIaRT themes, please leave a note on Tom or my profile with your ideas.  We would love to hear from you!

Run for yourself. Run your race. Stay focused. Keep your eye on the prize. Remember your training. Remember the good. Remember the bad. Use it all.


Nice one, Julia.

Thank you for another phenominal week of TIaRT! Each week, I compile the links from this and post it as an article in the Know How section in the Lounge so we can keep them forever.

This week, I copy/pasted all your 26 word advice into an article with a link back to each of you - well done! Great advice!
