Description

From the time the ancient Greek runner Pheidippides ran from Sparta to Marathon to announce the Greeks' victory in the Battle of Marathon, humans have had a compelling interest in endurance running. With over 300 marathons in the U.S. each year, and a few hundred thousand people running them, it is likely that one of your clients is interested in running a marathon. This presentation will walk you through the process of preparing your clients for a marathon, including tapering and delaying fatigue during the race.
