Five, Ten, Fifteen, Twenty-six point two.

Being an Canadian girl, I run in kilometers not miles. However, I’ve been trying to convert training plans that only come in miles. Fun times ๐Ÿ™‚ย I’ve run 5k’s, 10k’s and even a 1/2 Marathon {years ago} but have never attempted the FULL Marathon… 26.2 miles or 42.195 kilometers. I never felt the want or need to run a FULL Marathon until the last year or so. It’s on my mind and I have one in mind but am not committing to that at this point…it’s at LEAST another year away. Don’t worry – you’ll be the first to know ๐Ÿ˜‰

So for all you folks thinking about a FULL marathon – check this out. And for all you who’ve done them – hats off to you!


I can only imagine how much food I would want to consume after running a full marathon! And sleep, I’d want to sleep for twice as long as I ran…just sayin’.

Have you run a FULL Marathon?ย 

What’s the farthest you’ve run ?

What is the farthest distance you haven’t run yet but secretly want to? Don’t worry, I won’t tell.ย

  1. I didn’t really have a desire to run a full marathon until early this year, but it hit me really hard and now I’m determined to run my first full next year (hopefully spring)!

    • Me either. Before my girls were born running a 1/2 Marathon was enough and a FULL was something I NEVER was going to do. Now that we’re done having kids I’m ready for more running challenges ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I have indeed run a full marathon, and I loved it. I think this year, if I can make it, will be my swan song with the marathon–a chance to do it again, but I am just not needing the longer mileage anymore!

  3. I’ve done 9 fulls, 2 Ironmans, and a couple of trail ultramarathons. Going long rocks, and once you give in and embrace the distance there is no going back.

    My favorite post-race meals are quite varied. Most of the time there is a cheeseburger involved, but I go after lots of vegetarian foods too. Mostly it takes quantity and a steady stream of food. I get hungry about every hour, so you have to keep eating something constantly.
