That is the great thing about running. Everyone can set their own goals. I know I will never be an elite marathoner, however, getting under three hours is what makes me happy. Frankly, I am a much better 10K runner, but I enjoy the marathons more. I am better built for longer races being only 175cm and 65kg. Still, you can do it. Giving up the cancer stick is the best first step.I have promised myself that I am going to attempt and complete a marathon(in the first attempt) before I am 30(5 years).. I still have some way to go.. I frequently run 5kms but have a probably max capacity atm at around 10km. I am quite big, 183cm and 83kg, which will make it even harder for me(marathon)..
I love getting out on the open streets for a 100km bike ride or a two hour swim in the pool. And the sleeping is great afterward too. Exercise actually helps people to get the good sleep that they need.Nothing like the feeling after great a workout is there? Capoeira is my favorite.
