For the Beginner.I started using books for additional advice when I started running marathons. I gradually worked my way up to a marathon within one year's time in 2001. The training was grueling. I didnt consider the length of time, time of day, clothes to wear, sock, running shoe type, what to eat or training the right distance at the right time. That didnt keep me from pursuing the journey.
I started reading "how to's" and found a group of people who were familiar with the sport and joined them.
I look forward to hearing more of your running journey and following your blog. Click the follow button on this page so we can be buddies for the long haul! Run Steady! Pamela
