Tracking your Marathon progress can help you stay motivated
Recording achievements and reflecting back on them can help you maintain motivation to stay on track in any endeavor, including during Marathon. Consider keeping a journal with your Marathon accomplishments, including miles run and calories burned. As you look back on this journal, you may feel inspired to set more goals and work toward them.
Competition exists for runners who want it.
Competition can provide extra motivation for sticking with a Marathon regimen. As running has become more popular, Marathons have also become common around the world. While marathons and half marathons are available as tests of endurance, 5k and 10k runs are available as quicker competitions.
