Nice job. How's it going with walking down stairs? I cracked some plebe minute-caller up by descending Grant Barracks stairs backwards from the top floor after the Marine Corps marathon because my legs were too smoked to go down normally. An elevator would have been really nice at that point.

Stairs are the bane of my existence right now lol... I've been going down them sideways making lots of angry noises, which must be amusing to everyone else.

hmm... I think you sound like an old, disgruntled NCO. Perfect for the end of cow year.

Nice work Bridge! I’m very impressed

Chuckle. How about marching in step? Wobbly legs? The things you just don't expect afterwards...

First marathons are learning experiences.
From someone who ran only two ...

Something else we have in common, Peggy. ;-)

I see no reason to do more than two. First, your Boston qualifier. Then, Boston. Done.

Peggy, when I finally decide to train for a marathon (which is still at least several years out), that’s my goal. Marathons seem too painful for me to do more than two.

Trail marathons are more enjoyable!

Nicely done, Peggy. Some of us aren’t Boston material, but 2 is still enough!

Idk, I had an absolute blast up until around mile 20 or so, which made the painful last 10k worth it, so I think it would be fun to run them on a relatively regular basis! But that's just me, of course.

I enjoyed both my marathons, didn’t really hit a wall or suffer too much. But the training required is just beyond my ability now, both physically and time wise. I waited until my mid-30s to do mine. I agree that trails are nicer!
