congrats. And don't discount the fact that the foot pain is just from the distance. Sometimes there are aches and pains that won't come up until you hit a certain distance. Many folks encounter cramping feet and such.
But you should still get it checked out!

It was basically my whole foot, but in particular the ball of my foot. A podiatrist really isn't a bad idea! I actually have one that I like already!

Congrats on your marathon... I have had various problems with my feet. My advice, go straight to your podiatrist. They're amazing... they will look at your shoes, running style, gait etc. They will sort out orthotics if required, strapping and excercises. Good luck :-) I've just got back from NY Marathon... loved it.

Where is the foot pain? I encountered this after my first marathon. It was on the outside of the foot, towards the front. It didn't bother me while running; just for about 10 days after. Icing and rest helped. I still haven't figured out what caused it.

Congrats on your first marathon!

Congrats!
Depending on what's going on it could be your shoes or the stress from the race. I have had some issues with my right foot and I needed arch supports, plus rolling my foot out on a foot roller (like the stick) really helps loosen up those tight ligiments. Rolling on a frozen water bottle helps too! If it keeps bothering you it may be a good idea to see your Dr to be sure nothing else is going on. Good luck!

Hi all, I finished my first marathon this past Sunday. It was amazing! My only issue was foot and knee pain in the last ~3mi. I could have pushed much harder if it wasn't for the foot pain in particular. do you think this is a shoe issue, or something else? I never had the problem during training, and it might be kind of hard to replicate without running another 23+ miles.
