One of the things that I love most about running marathons is having a blog about it. For races, so much goes into planning, preparing, and analyzing how I’m going to be my very best during a marathon and having a blog gives me the outlet to record all these aspects. Think of it like my own personal race almanac, an archive of all the details important to my journey to run marathons to my very peak.
I’m able to share with friends, family, and even strangers about the different routines I’m trying, my diet, my regular training runs, and of course… photos of my success after each marathon. A blog really is an awesome way to make them a part of my experience, while also getting them motivated to get out there and run themselves.
The blog also serves as a great way for me to look back too and see what was working or not working, but most importantly, to get my own motivation as I continue forward. Starting a blog on running marathons was a good way to plug me into the community, and that probably stands at the biggest reason yet for creating a personal blog.
