Why do runners take on the challenge of a difficult event like a marathon or half marathon?
Posted Feb 18 2010 2:53pm
At first, many runners want to achieve what very few people achieve: only one-tenth of one percent of the population finish either a half or a full marathon each year. After completing the training and the marathon, many runners break through mental confidence barriers and go on to accomplishing things they never thought possible before their finish. Finishing one of these events changes most lives for the better.
