I experienced the following, from the video, for my first marathon (March of this year):
4. Isolation (I had a running partner, but for some strange reason I thought the exact same thing).
5. Despair, without Runner’s Trot (yuck….).
6. The Wall
Well, come to think of it, I actually experienced all 8 stages. What have you experienced when you completed you first half marathon or full marathon?
