The term "marathon" came from the legend of Pheidippides, a Greek messenger.
T'he legend states that he was sent from the battlefield of Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon. It is said that he ran the entire distance without stopping and burst into the assembly exclaiming, "we have wοn," before collapsing and dying.
Whatever your reason, hold on to it and remind yourself of it often during the months that lie ahead.
When preparing for any marathon or long distance, not only is physical preparation important but it is also crucial to prepare mentally for the gruelling number of miles and the inevitable mental challenges.
