Hello everyone! I'm new to this site, but I've been reading the blog for a while. This is my first marathon and I'm looking for a community to help me motivate me to finish the LA Marathon. I've tried getting my friends to join me, but they're either hesitant to run a marathon, or committed to other races.


Is anyone here signed up or planning to run the LA Marathon (or any other marathon at around March 19, 2017)?


A little bit about me:

  • I just finished my first half marathon at about 02:12, 10:06 pace. My goal was to just finish injury free.
  • I don't consider myself a runner, although by engaging in this activity I recognize the fallacy of the statement.
  • I'm focused more on form, consistency, and building strength and endurance than speed.
  • I decided to run to improve my overall health, not just weight loss. Since starting, it's become somewhat meditative for me.
  • I'm trying to take advantage of my surroundings (i.e., desert, national parks, state parks), which has led me to trail running and hiking.


I would love to connect with anyone who's running the marathon. If you're not, any advice is welcome. I'm here to learn.
