Top 10 Reasons to Run Marathons

Who am I kidding? I don't need 10 reasons to run a marathon, and neither should you.

Running can be the purest form of meditation if you allow it to be, and translating that "me time" into 12-16 weeks of focused training intent on accomplishing one goal is immensely gratifying. At the very least, it is an absolute testament to what you can accomplish with nothing but your body and mind, no assembly required.

So if you want to run a marathon, RUN A MARATHON. Be smart, be safe and run strong.

As for the nay-sayers and their "Top 10 Reasons NOT to Run Marathons" - pretty soon they'll be 3,626,997 feet behind you.

Just see if they can catch up.


  1. Absoultely!! I don't need 10reasons either- just one- I CAN!! :)

  2. Right on! You are not only doing something good for yourself, but most marathons also benefit a charity. All around a win win situation.
