What kind of idiot would run a marathon without training for it first? Me.
I know the horror stories. Endurance athletes fear “hitting the wall,” or reaching the point where the body runs out of energy and BAM! Roadkill. With no preparation, I'd most likely smash into this wall hard enough to leave a dent.
I wanted to train for the 2010 St. George Marathon, but after breaking my foot, the only marathon I could handle was on Netflix. When the marathon came, I just wanted the shirt I paid for, but peer pressure and the energy of the other 6,000 runners convinced me to try it anyway. My plan? Push the wall past the finish line, grab some ice cream, crawl into my truck, and then drive home.
This memoir details my love/hate relationship with running and how I survived 26.2 grueling miles that I had no business attempting. This book also includes tips for new runners. It’s whimsical, yet educational. It’s whimsucational!
Includes a foreward by Aaron Metler, the winner of the 2010 and 2014 St. George Marathons.
