BTC Guest Blogger, Al Dimicco, shares his insights about training for the marathon on his blog, TRAINING WITH AL. For the past 25 years, Al has coached mostly novice long distance runners with an approach that there's no magic to running a marathon -- just dedication, consistency, a little knowledge of exercise physiology, and mostly the avoidance of "doing something stupid."
In his most recent blog, "Things I've Learned in 35 Years of Marathoning", Al shares a few of his most basic pearls of wisdom about training for a marathon.
