As I mentioned in my MCM recap, everyone’s 26.2 is unique. And there’s no better way to see that than by reading other accounts. I also think it’s very important to write out recollections from important events like this as a way to preserve the experience.
Today’s post brings you the thoughts from my husband, Jason, as he reflects on his 2012 MCM, his preparation for the 2013 MCM, his race, and the aftermath.
|“I remember the first time I had decided to run a marathon. It was way back in early 2011, and my awesome wife and I were looking for a challenge. We decided to partake in the Mistletoe Half-Marathon. 13.1 miles seemed like a impossible task, but my sister had just run one so it couldn’t be that hard. We diligently trained all year and that winter I finished with a respectable time of 1 hour 47 minutes (looking back, I have no clue how I did that), and decided we’d run in the 2012 Marine Corps Marathon. What’s the harm in doubling the distance? How hard could it be?”Click here to go to Jason’s blog for his full recap|
