While April is coming to an end, the month we dub #marathonmonth, marathoners near and far continue to crush PRs racing the 26.2 all year round. Over the weekend we asked the question on twitter, "why do you love the marathon?" The responses we got back were overwhelming, each unique and all inspiring - a collection of them are shared here. If you have run the marathon, we would love to hear your response on twitter @oiselle, or tell us in the comments!
We know a lot can happen in 26.2 miles, making it very important to "control the controllables" as they say. That is why we rounded up marathon advice from Oiselle elites. Each has had their ups, downs and lessons learned in training and racing. Instead of crossing your fingers for the best race day, read on to see what tips you can glean from the pros.
