Whether you are running in one of the huge marathons in Chicago, New York City or Berlin, or in Dresden, Frankfurt, or Amsterdam, or in a local marathon in your area, your marathon is the most important one. It will bring you agony and joy, it will test you and make you stronger, and it will make you a part of human history.
In these last weeks, your training and schedule are critical to your entire commitment. If you are battling through a nagging injury, please visit our Health Management pages. You will find articles on managing these injuries, notably Managing Achilles Tendon Injuries and Treating the Painful Kneecap. And it might help you to read Two Days Before the Marathon so that you get the most joy and memories from your marathon experience.
To marathoners everywhere, Take The Magic Step wishes you success and self-satisfaction as you explore your boundaries and limits! Keep running!
