I’m a sucker for an inspirational running blog, especially when the writer is a Nike+iPod enthusiast. If you think marathons are only for elite runners, and are out of the reach of “regular” people, Beth Runs! proves otherwise. The blog follows Beth from her initial decision to run a marathon, through her training, injuries, setbacks, more training, and ultimately to the completion of her first marathon (on her 42nd birthday) just 10 months later. It’s a great reminder of what we can achieve if we’re focused on a goal. Because of Beth, I’m seriously considering signing up for the San Francisco Marathon this year.
