"I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion.'" Muhammad Ali
It takes 16 or 17 weeks to train for a marathon and pushing your body to its very limits hurts. At the peak of training you will be running approximately 40 miles a week and eating like a horse. But there is not a better feeling in the world when you cross that finish line knowing you have just accomplished something that less than 1% of the people in the world can say they have done.
This past week was a good week of training for me. I ran a total of 25 miles, and did one hour of cross training at the Y with my personal trainer Eric.
