I'm not too sure if you are after advice. I'm probably the last person who should give you any advice in relation to preparation as I have yet to run a marathon myself!!!
However, I do have a "passion" about finishing anything that I begin ... and I mean anything!!! Especially when I give someone my word that I would do it.
Let me explain, last month I made a bet / committment to a friend of mine that I could run a marathon (yeah ... I know ... silly me ...hehehe). Anywayz ... the marathon that I'm entering is 4 weeks away and I gotta admit that right now I'm feeling really really anxious about whether I can pull this off or not.
I am going to do everything I can to the best of my ability to make sure I cross that finish line. I know 42k is a helluva long hike. Yesterday I did 20k and my body is still in agony.
My advice is ... stay positive. Do the best you can with what you have at hand. Listen to the great advice of people who have run marathons before (unlike me for now anywayz...) and finally ... even if you don't cross the finish line ... You are truly a champion by even making it to the STARTING LINE!!!
"SHOOT FOR THE MOON, EVEN IF YOU MISS ... YOU WILL LAND AMONGST THE STARS!!!"
