‘Running a successful marathon consists of a number of factors, whether you are an
experienced runner or not, getting an adequate amount of training or even just choosing the right shoes.
Conquering the miles is not all physical though preparing the mind and fueling the body properly is key.
Calm the pre-race jitters and see tips for Running a Marathon in the Infographic below, allowing you to focus on what you need to do mentally, physically an nutrition-wise from a few days before the race to a few hours after you cross the finish line.’ -Source: Caloriecount.com (edited)
