    You may find post marathon that you’re ready for a different challenge…at least that’s how I got into triathlons. I agree body glide has many uses (as a female) I like to apply it when I’m wearing non-running shoes (heels, flats) that give me blisters.

    This is fantastic! I am going to be a first time marathoner in a week and some change as well and I have thought or dealt with every one of these since training began! Especially how I hate (but secretly love) running and want to quit. Cheers to quitting in 12 days! Enjoy your first marathon!!

      Don’t quit! Just a little break 🙂

    “Your cousin’s wedding is this Saturday? But I have to run 19 miles! Tell her to move the wedding to November.” This made me laugh.

  • This is so good! Spot on.
