As we've been training for this marathon I've found good and bad things that I never thought about.
Pro: The more we run the easier it is to keep going.
Con: You have to actually run before it gets easy.
Pro: Some days you amaze yourself with how well you're doing and how pleasant it is.
Con: When you try it again the next day you end up staying in the bathroom for an hour after you finish. Oh, the misery.
Pro: When you run with the sun in your face you know it won't be in your eyes on the return trip.
Con: When the sun is behind you it's much easier to see the shadow of bouncing fat rolls.
I think it's going well.
