All good reminders. Thankfully, I feel like I've been pretty smart with my running-I follow a lot of those tips. Thanks for posting!

Thanks Don, good info! It probably pertains to some of the smaller big runs too as far as newbies go. Always good to make sure your body can handle it before just lacing the shoes up and going for it.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.

I know that marathons are "hot" right now and I appreciate and applaud the kind of "high" and personal gratification they can bring.

But: just wanted to forward a few words of caution (especially to newbie runners) so that folks can SPARK with care...
