Marathon I hate running, but it's something that has to be done.
Begs the question...why? I can kind of understand why people who actually like running would do it but if not, it looks like hell. You've got to really, REALLY put in months and months of training of doing something you hate and the actual event looks awful - lots of hanging around/shuffling/being penned in at the start and lots of people EVERYWHERE on the route, shouting and hollering? I know the point of the spectators is to gee people on but I would find it really annoying.
And we haven't even started on the fact that you've got to raise a fortune and then there's the chafing....you strike me as the type that would (rightfully) hate Ride100 for many of the reasons I've mentioned above (and the organisers have said they want it to become the cycling version of the marathon) so I'm wondering why you'd want to do the marathon..?
