Learn : Marathon Story  

Running Background:

I consider myself an advanced runner and I primarily run for fitness. I decided to run this particular marathon because I have run all of the Big Island marathons.

Training:

I trained for 12 months following the Galloway run/walk program. During my training I averaged 25 miles per week.

The best training advice I received is to be consistent, do the miles, and speed kills.

Race Day:

The 2007 Big Island International Marathon was worse than expected. I dehydrated which was my fault.

On the bright side, the race was very well organized.

Recovery:

My recovery wasn't bad. I made sure to take in lots of fluids and rest in the days following the race.

Running Gear Recommendations:

Tips/Words of Encouragement:

The clock's ticking, better sooner than later.

Plans to Run Another:

I plan to continue running marathons. I do it to maintain my fitness, and because it's a fun social event.

For my next marathon, I'll log more miles in my training.
