Marathon Planning

Which marathon(s) shall I attempt in 2024? This question remains unanswered. Right now I'm leaning toward the Flying Pig Marathon in Cincy the first weekend of May. If so, this will be my fourth time running this event. As I ponder what brings me to the starting line of a marathon (I've started 20 of them and, by the grace of God, finished 20 of them), I think it boils down to one thing: the harder you work for something, the more it means to you. The fact that you've made it 26.2 miles makes the finish line that much sweeter. 

Don't be afraid to challenge yourself. It will make you stronger.
