It's been hot, and I haven't been @ my healthiest, but I've "needed" to get out for my morning run. You're absolutely right - it has made the runs more fun. I've timed my walks to be near more interesting areas (the ocean, some homes for sale, yards w/ nice landscaping). Taking this approach has allowed me to still get out for my run, but also to take some time to stop, look around and enjoy the time alone and outside. Dave Victoria –

I manage to solve work problems while running, think of how to enjoy the coming weekend, to just enjoy the peace and quiet around me. Why marathons ? Apparently less than 1 percent of the population has run one. It is a good feeling to know that this ordinary guy (in every other way) can be in such company. On Sunday you will be too... Good luck. Make sure you write about your experience on the blog and let us know how it goes.
