Marathon .. "What kind of nut?"

This is one of my all time favorite articles written by the Sports writer we have referenced before on this blog. You surely recall his great article posted here on May 12, 2009, “When the Phone Rings”.

Well, he has done it again, this time with an article about his first Marathon.

Even if you are not a runner, (and I most definitely am not, never will be, nor want to be... “what kind of nut...”), you will love this most honest telling of his first Marathon.

Usually folks make this out to be an “oh, no problem, it was a piece of cake” type of experience. Well, this article tells you in a humorous way what really happens in a Runner’s mind and body. And, big hint, just as you suspected, running a marathon is not a 'piece of cake'.

You must read this even if you are not a runner. HERE’S THE LINK
