I cannot remember a time that I worked so hard to complete a goal. It is hard to explain, but training for and running a marathon is “different”. It is extremely trying, but it is also rewarding, especially when you reach each new mileage milestone in your training. When I first saw the training plan, it was intimidating, but I am just one example to prove that IT CAN BE DONE.
How did I accomplish this task???? Fleet Feet!
I’ve always told myself that I could do anything if given the proper instruction and resources, and FF gave me that. On race day, I felt I had done all I could do to prepare myself for this race. I was prepared. I did the training, except for the “hated” strength/core training that Shahin preaches. As Henry can attest, it does make a difference, but for me, the day only had so many hours and the body could only do so much.
Without the FF training, I can honestly say there would have never been a chance for me completing the challenge. There is no way I could have done the training on my own and not just the training but the knowledge and experience that goes along with training for this distance. Another vital part of the training is the support. You will not find a better group of people to help you reach your goal. Thanks to our running partners & coaches for all of their support and to all of the other training group participants. - Becky Marambio
