Complete A Marathon

The marathon has an official distance of 42.195 kilometres (26.219 miles; 26 miles 385 yards).

The event was instituted in commemoration of the fabled run of the Greek soldier Pheidippides, a messenger from the Battle of Marathon to Athens, who reported the victory.

Many people aspire to run a marathon once in their life, which is why this made my Bucket List.

Lots of training is required, which tends to take up a lot of time, the key to a good time is plenty of training mileage.
