I signed up to run the NYC Marathon this year. I know nothing about running a marathon, but what I do know is that the first step to doing anything big is to learn more about it. Right now, I’m in the process of doing research to learning and understanding how the body works, what the body needs in terms of fuel and even rest. There are so many things that you have to consider when running a marathon.
Another key component is to enlist the support of your family and friends. Right now, I’m so excited about this idea of “Running a Marathon” but what’s going to happen when reality hits and I have to run 5 miles in one day – yes, that is real. I have to build up to these steps in order to make the changes in my life that I need to make in order to even attempt to run this race.
Once you have done the research and you have support and you are determined, the next step is to START!
