Now before you start thinking to yourself, “I can’t run a marathon.” Think about this:
“Anyone can run a marathon. Oprah Winfrey did it. Senators, presidents, and movie stars do it all the time. The hit reality show The Biggest Loser even culminated in a marathon for the contestants who have lost the most weight–as if to make the point that anyone, even the morbidly obese, can become an athlete with enough grit and determination…It’s been said that the marathon has become the ‘everyman’s Everest’.” –The Runner’s World Big Book of Marathon and Half-Marathon Training
If you aren’t currently a runner, you probably think you can’t run a marathon. You are wrong. I wouldn’t recommend running one today, but you can run one by the end of the year.
If you are a runner and you say you can’t run a marathon, you say this out of fear.
Anyone can run a marathon and if anyone can run a marathon, even the busiest person can run a half marathon. Think about it. The only thing stopping you is your mind. So make up your mind that this will be your year! You can do it!
