  1. I just want to say – thanks! I found this site last night, and ran my first marathon this morning. I spent some time last night reading through old posts, and I got some great last-minute advice. I’m so glad to have found you – a great site for normal female runners (not ones who run 80 miles a week and then eat salad for every meal). Thanks guys!
