Recently I have been facing some negitivity about me running a marathon, but I just have to look at my training diary and I can quite plainly see what I have a achieved.
I have found the blog a good way to keep my motivation up. I'm entering every day even if I haven't run and it is a real treat (and zero calories:happy ) Ignore negativity if you can- challenge anyone else to do the marathon and see how they shape up. I haven't had the courage to look that far ahead yet although a friend of mine started running in his mid 40s and has run about 3 at around 3.20 ish. I could probably do the same but it'd be 3 days 20! Just focus on the fun you'll have showing them your marathon medal
