Running your First Marathon

Is it your first time running a marathon? Here are a few tips to get you started.

Choose the Right Gear

Your running shoes should be relatively lightweight but provide ample support. Test your shoes beforehand to determine whether you’re likely to develop blisters or get sore feet–before it’s too late. If the shoes bother you on this run, get yourself another pair.

Chill Out

Reduce the outside stresses in your life as much as possible the last week. Try to have work projects under control, politely decline invitations to late nights out, and so on. Most of all, stay off your feet.

Spread the Word

Tell your friends, family and even workmates that you’re participating in a marathon. Once people at work figure out what you are doing, things get fun!

Start Slow

Adrenaline is flowing at the start of a marathon, so it’s tempting to start out too fast.

Keep Warm after the Race

As soon as you stop running, your body temperature drops.
