The history of marathons
I’m not sure a history lesson will help you runners out there to start adding a Functional Fitness component to your overall fitness program. You know that I have been trying over and over to help you. I’ve come to terms with your addiction (I’m even having a pull that way with my enjoyment of barefoot running). But I will not give up my quest to help educate and preach to runners to crosstrain and achieve a better functional body.
That is why I made K-Crosstrain last year. It is an 8 week program designed to help runners get into crosstraining. What? You don’t have a copy? Oh man, just click on the link to your right under “Free – Crosstraining for Runners” on that little picture with the words K-Crosstrain on it. Or, click here.
Anyway, back to history. Staff from Everyday Health contacted me recently and let me know about a great post that explains the history behind the marathon. For instance, why is it 26.2 miles? Since I am a huge history buff, I couldn’t resist.
Again, you are probably only going to feed your crazy running addiction after reading the link, but enjoy it anyways. Dont’ say I never gave you anything! Just don’t give up on me. Because I am not giving up on you, even with your crazy running all over the place and not crosstraining attitude.
