I enjoy running marathons, and plan on running at least one in every state. I have picked up a few tips and tricks along the way as I find out what works for me and what does not. This series of articles originally began as some random tips off of the top of my head that I knew my friends would read before their first marathon. Why should they make the same sorts of mistakes that I have, when a little foreknowledge could make it easier for them?
Well, through a random happenstance, the first two articles wound up being 9 bullet points each. I decided to carry that theme through for no particular reason, and so I now have nine articles about getting ready for a marathon that all have a list of nine items. Technically, this round up of all of the articles also has 9 bullet points, since I am listing each one.
The articles are listed below in the order that they were published in. This is not necessarily the best order in terms of what to tackle in a chronological sense, but they are all worth looking at so I left them in their original order.
