As you may or may not know (I hope you know!) I’m doing the 2013 Dallas Marathon. I though each week I would list one reason why you should do one also! So without further delays I give you reason #9………………
To get in shape!
Think about it, 18 weeks, lots of running. How can you NOT get fit!? Each marathon schedule typically ask you to commit at least 4 days a week to running. At least 3 miles and up to 20 miles on the weekends. Training for a marathon increase endurance, gives a you a great cardiovascular workout, increases your mood and energy. It’s like a wealth of health benefits just waiting on the other side!! Yes 26.2 miles is a long ways, but the benefits and glory out weighs it all! So what are you waiting for?!!? Go sign up for one now!!
