Run a Marathon Without Leaving Your Seat!

On January 18, 2010, in Running, by Robert Dallison

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!

OK, it's time to start running again during the week. Today was a lunchtime 5k with the final 1km up a long, slow climb. I didn't manage to nail it in one (had to walk 100m about halfway up), but I'm apparently in much better shape than when I started runnign again back in September. Planning to slowly increase mileage and hopefully see gradual improvement. Just getting round this course without stopping to walk will be an accomplishment! posted 24 days ago
