I did it!!! It was really tough especially in the mid 90 degree heat but I used so much of what I have learned from this page as well as the MTA podcast, particularly about visualisation and positive self talk. Thank you so much for all the support during my first marathon! Rebecca from Australia
New York City Marathon – 3:37:43 – almost an 8 minute PR for me! Thank you Angie and Trevor and the MTA clan. I train alone so you have all become my virtual training partners, inspiration and motivation. -Anam
