“Everything you wanted to learn about yourself, you can learn in 42.2 kilometers.”
by Lori Culnane
Training for a marathon is 1 part physical, and three parts mental. The level of potential personal growth during a marathon training season is immeasurable. We enter training season believing that the biggest challenge is our legs, cardiovascular system, and feet. What we learn is how quickly our body adapts to running, leaving our mind far behind.
Running the distance teaches you how capable you are. You approach day-to-day problems differently. Anxiety is not your first reaction to change. You learn that the simple action of running is often the most effective reset for a difficult day. The challenge is not your feet – The challenge is you!
