Marathon training!

So not strictly about PR, but I thought I would briefly share an observation about marathon training. In a few weeks time I will be attempting the Edinburgh Marathon and have been training in and around North London for the past few months and I’ve noticed something.

I guess that is just part of the way in London, like the silence on the tube, or the strange looks when you try and start a conversation with a stranger on the bus.

On marathon day everyone is supportive and encouraging. Why not during training and other runs?

Anyway, I just think it’s a shame.
