    Good luck to both of you. I hope to hear all about the marathons. Even though you guys won't have the crowds cheering, I will be cheering you on from afar.

    20 miles today, almost finished training for what is now a virtual marathon on dec 6th. still a medal, goody bag and a PB (PR) to go for despite the strange times!
    Nice!  The one I am doing next Sunday was cancelled completely.  No medal or goody bag
    ...but I am doing it myself.  
    thats a shame, I was really glad to have the virtual option to keep the motivation levels up, although to be honest right now running for sanity is as good as any reason to run.

    Hope it's a good run for you, I did my own in the spring during first lockdown... the last 6 miles without the event excitement was hell 😂
    Yeah about what I am expecting...not having other people and crowds cheering will make it a bit more challenging.  
    Good luck with your marathon run tomorrow. I will be rooting for you. Post here when you are done to let us know how it was.

    Well, first marathon in the books.  Was pretty tough.  My legs held out pretty well but my back was freaking out most of the time, which was lovely, and my ankle enjoyed it thoroughly.
    Next time will be better but it is always a PR the first time and I would have laughed two years ago if someone told me I would do all these different races and even run 26.2 miles in a marathon that I had to do solo.  

    Goes to show that anyone can do it.  I played three sports in high school but wasn't great at any of them.  Not particularly active in the years since, although I did play some club stuff in college for fun.  When I put on shoes and started a 66 day challenge in Feb 2019 I swore that on day 67 I would be done with running.

    Guess not!  

    Good for the soul.

    :joy:  Congrats. That is so awesome. I am sorry your back was hurting. But you did it!!! That is very inspiring. You should be so proud of yourself. That is quite a goal you achieved 👏👏👏. Make sure to treat yourself today.

    Thanks.  I appreciate all of your encouraging words along the way, this thread is fun.
    My treat is laying on the couch all day (which is about all my body is good for today) and watching football.  That is a great day, though, I fully intend to enjoy it!

    Great job! I have run one half, but I am not sure if I will ever attempt to do a full. I don't know if I am dedicated enough to do the training required.

    well done! Some effort dragging your lonely self around 26.2 miles! in a short time all the pain will be forgotten and you will be lookong for the next one! (theyre always horrible though 😉) 👏👏👏

    finished training for mine which is on dec 6th. I have a few under my belt but Im really pushing for sub 3h30m. I turn 41 this week and not getting any quicker so its all or nothing 😂. 

    So glad to stumble on this thread. The only thing better than running is talking about it.... constantly!

    Training has gone really well. I'm not sure I quite have it in me but  I'm sure this is my last attempt at a PB at marathon distance so I eill just go for it. Im really starting to enjoy the ultra/trail running side of things. As strange as it sounds, doing the longer distances is much more relaxed and enjoyable.

    Good luck. I hope you reach your goal. That is a good one. My friends are sick of me talking about running, so this thread is great for that. I have also gotten so many excellent tips about all kinds of things here as well. Let us know how it went.
