RUNNING YOUR FIRST MARATHON
by Roy Yeow
For the uninitiated, running a marathon is a crazy, suicidal idea. But for those who intend to join the 1% of the world population that has completed a marathon, the journey to prepare for a marathon is an experience that can be fulfilling and filled with challenges. Many use the term "marathon" incorrectly to refer to any running event. A Marathon is a 42.195km footrace, period. Anything shorter is called a half marathon, mini marathon, 10km race, etc.
