Have you ever wondered what it feels like to run a marathon?

Watch this video of the ING Miami Marathon course, and experience for yourself what it is like to go the distance!

In this 8-minute “drive-through” you get to see the complete 26.2 miles, covering South Beach, Venetian Causeway, Coconut Grove and Key Biscayne.

Anyone Can Run a Marathon – Yes, Even You!

On January 14, 2010, in Running, by Robert Dallison

I just used my lunch break to watch this documentary from NOVA, following 13 sedentary non-athletes and their nine-month quest to run the Boston Marathon.

Inspiring and encouraging for those days when it’s hard to maintain your training schedule!

If you are a runner (or wondering about how to get started) then you should definitely watch this documentary. It is long but worth watching all the way through.

Thanks to my Twitter friend @Oblinkin for the original link. I found it here on RunBlogger, in his post explaining why you should consider running a marathon. Had I not already made this decision, his article would have convinced me!
