There’s nothing quite like the thrill of running a marathon. Every single race gives you a high like no other, but there’s something so magical about running your first marathon.
Hi, my name is Jessica Knight and I have been competing in races all over the US for almost 10 years now.
I didn’t summon the courage to run a marathon, though, for five years of that! I stuck to what I knew - 5k, 10k, and half marathons.
After those five years, one of my running friends decided to pull me out of my comfort zone and sign us up for a full marathon. Let me tell you, the training almost took me out of the race for good!
Challenging, but oh so rewarding. And the atmosphere among all of the runners when the actual marathon started? Unmatched. I can’t even begin to describe how it felt to cross that finish line.
I guess you’ll just have to experience it for yourself! Now that I have run a few more marathons, I want to inspire others to try a marathon for themselves. You don’t have to wait five years! I wish I’d had the courage much sooner.
Let me be your friend that takes you out of your comfort zone and into the marathon fire. I’ll help with tips and tricks, diet and nutrition advice, and teach you everything there is to know about running races.
What are we waiting for? Let’s get training!
