2 Days To Marathon!

Forty one thousand, two hundred and eighty.

41, 280

That is approximately how many steps it will take me to get from the starting line of the marathon to the finish line of the marathon.

One day while I was running I counted how many steps I take per minute and concluded that it is about 172. That night I multiplied 172 steps per minute times 4 hours. 41,280. Piece of cake. I. Can. Do. This.

"What distinguishes those of us at the starting line from those of us on the couch is that we learn through running to take what the day gives us, what our body will allow us, and what our will can tolerate."
