There are no shortage of listicles within the running blogosphere offering tips to help you prepare for your first marathon.
However, while there may be a ba-gillion different blogs/pages devoted to tips on successfully running your first marathon, they seemingly recycle the same list of suggestions from one post to the next.
Now, I don’t mean to say that many of these common tips like remembering to taper, gradually increasing your mileage, and not starting the race too fast aren’t important tips because they are, but how many different websites need to basically repost the same information before enough is enough?
If you’re looking for those types of tips here, sorry. You came to the wrong place.
