Marathon Time

The New York City Marathon was run today and many commentators said that a lot of runners have been motivated to race while watching past marathons.

I have talked to marathoners and even people who compete in Ironman competitions and I don’t wonder how they do it physically. They have assured me that with enough training and incentive one can accomplish just about anything.

What I wonder is how they get the time, the hours needed, to practice and the time to actually travel to the races.

Today I was going to try to go over to the YMCA and swim laps for an hour, but the obligations of day-to-day life intruded and I never got to do it.
