Book - First Marathons - Personal Encounters with the 26.2 Mile Monster
This book was posted on a blog I follow - The Running Moron - It was a good book, but for a slower runner like me it was kinda scary! Most of the people took way under four hours to finish their marathons, I'm looking at 7+. In the first few stories there was a reoccurring theme, "by mile 20 I was ready to quit" , "at mile 20 the pain was so bad" , "around mile 20 there were people around me collapsing in pain" - OK so I guess once I reach mile 20 and I'm not dying that will be a good thing right?? - But anyway it was neat to see that there are all shapes, ages and different abilities out there running marathons.
