Where are all my marathon runners!? I finally ran my first back in October, wow, what an accomplishment…and DAMN, that was seriously the hardest thing I have ever done! Let’s just say I was NOT as prepared as I should have been.
Here a few tips for you guys…pre and post marathon!
Definitely run out of state for your first marathon. Sea level is so much easier to manage. I didn’t really struggle until mile 18-19 since I trained in the good ole mile high city.
Be sure to bring a running pouch with you like this one I got from Living One Love. Fill it with energy boosters and small snacks to keep you moving!
GEAR UP: lightweight and breathable are a must…NIKE is my brand of choice.
Don’t forget a cute dress for the down time… I found mine at Pacsun. This particular one is sold out but I found one that is similar for you guys!
Don’t forget your Sunnies! The ones I am wearing here are from Aldo and they are on sale!
Last but not least, bring a running buddy…or two
