No more excuses! Here are nine reasons why you should run a marathon:

  1. Running a marathon is an incredible personal achievement.
  2. You’ll be part of an exclusive group of people. Less than 1% of the worlds population has ever ran a marathon.
  3. There are incredible health benefits including cardiovascular strength
  4. You’ll get a wicked runners butt!
  5. When you’re burning around 4,000 calories a week during training season, you can pretty much eat anything you want!
  6. There’s nothing better than having bragging rights in the office and amongst your friends and family, as when you show up wearing a marathon finisher’s medal.
  7. Marathon runners hold a special bond. It’s an instant conversation starter and something you can converse on for hours.
  8. Try something new. Marathon training will add diversity into what may have become a very boring gym, sport, yoga, or other physical activity rut you’re in.
  9. If you have a stressful job or relationship, running is an awesome outlet to escape.
