As some of you may know, the St. George Marathon will be going on this weekend. Many people have been training for months just to go out and run 26.2 miles! If you’re like me you are thinking, “now why in the world would someone put themselves through that kind of torture?”. I have no idea of what would possess someone to train for that long to run that kind of distance! These runners must be very dedicated to running to actually want to do that. Marathon runners come from all walks of life, any and all ages. Every year I volunteer at the marathon by handing out water and Gatorade, and there are always very young people running! I couldn’t imagine running a marathon now, let alone when I was12 years old; like some of the runners are. Also, there are a lot of older people that run the marathon, I would like to imagine me being that physically fit when I get older. They are truly amazing athletes.
As previous years before, I will be at one of the many aid stations along the course re-hydrating those awesome runners! It is a lot of fun and it feels really good afterward, knowing you helped these people finish something they have dreamed of for, maybe, years.If any of you people are crazy enough to attempt one of these marathons; don’t go unprepared! Check out these NordicTrack coupons and get yourself a treadmill, to help you train. Good luck!
