Windmiler Wisdom - Running and training for a Marathon

Running a marathon can be a daunting task and completing one is a major achievement.  For the newcomer it can seem overwhelming; it seems a huge task with many pitfalls.  Thankfully there is a lot of guidance out there, hundreds of internet pages, videos and books.

But our club mates are also packed with wisdom, between them a few centuries of running experience; often the wisdom we seek is standing or jogging right next to us.  So it is worth asking other Windmilers for advice. Here are some marathon tips from fellow Windmilers.
