It’s the first thing you’ll think about when you wake up.
Before we start talking about the halves, let’s inspect a full marathon for a second. The first marathon commemorated the run of Pheidippides, a Greek soldier, who ran from a battlefield near the town of Marathon to Athens in 490 B.C. Pheidippides ran around 25 miles to announce to the Athenians the defeat of the Persians, delivered the message, then – according to legend – collapsed and died.
If you ask me, this story already sounds dangerous enough and makes me think twice. Even if a half marathon is only half as long, do you really want to accept that challenge and run such a race? I just want to warn you, it involves long preparations, lots of laundry, black toes, and a change of heart. Read about 11 reasons why you shouldn’t run a half marathon . Hopefully, the first thing you’ll do once you’ve finished reading is to sign up for your first half marathon!
