Reasons to run a Marathon #1

I figure if I am going to do this, I’d better have a darn good reason.  Some reasons, it turns out, are better than others.  According to this study, which I heard about on one of the billion marathon-training podcasts I downloaded this week, running a marathon to lose weight or simply for recognition is a pretty much guaranteed fail.

Good thing I heard that yesterday.

OK, new reason…. (hmmm….the video is only supposed to run to 2:41, oh well at least I figured out how to get it embedded)
Vodpod videos no longer available.

Any of those will do, or — a reason that comes a little bit later — “I run them for the t-shirt.”

Good flick by the way, I’m going to have to watch it every day for the next 157 days.
