In Which Jenn Confronts Her Eleventh Marathon

Marine Corps Marathon

I have now run 10 marathons. When you’ve done 10 marathons, you’ve done a lot of different kinds of marathons.

There’s the cold marathon

… and then the even colder marathon.

There’s the marathon with the PR you never saw coming

..,and the marathon where you thought you’d PR – but you don’t.

There’s the marathon where a previous injury is vanquished 

…and the marathon where a previous injury takes you down.

There’s your first marathon

…your last marathon

And of course, always and against your better judgment… your next marathon.

My next marathon – my eleventh marathon, the Marine Corps Marathon – is next Sunday. I have had a good training cycle. I’ve experienced some minor inner knee issues. The weather looks like it might be advantageous for running if we can avoid rain.  

We’ll see what happens, but here’s the main thing about 10 marathons: I know that no matter what comes my way, I can do it! 

How to tackle marathons 

When’s your next marathon?
