I ran my marathon, my first.
It was interesting.
It was hard.
It was fun.
It was a bucket list check off.

Thanks for looking.

Congratulations, man! :thumbsup:

I can ride my bike 100 miles fairly easily, but I can't imagine running a marathon (my shins hurt after about a mile).

When's the next one?

Thanks!

I trained for 18 weeks formally, with a schedule. But was in fairly good shape before the training.

For the training:
18 weeks...
I ran 630 total miles
ran 2 20 plus mile runs
ran 2 50 plus mile weeks
used up 2 pairs of running shoes
burned 630,000 calories ( about 600 boxes of twinkies)


As of now...
I have retired from running marathons.;)
