Success of Marathon

Success comes in many ways. My client Kathy had success completing the Boston Marathon. Monday’s marathon had record dry heat with a slight tail wind. This was particularly difficult for runners coming from the northern part of the country. Marathons are half mental, half physical. This philosophy proved to be tougher this year at Boston Marathon.

Kathy saw the race as part of her Ironman in August. On Friday, we had strategy meeting to get her from Hopkinton to Boston without cramps, not in medical tent and no injury. She wore her heart rate monitor to keep her as she said “honest”, not go fast. She stuck to the hydration strategy. She came out of the marathon mentally stronger to do her Ironman. Every runner finishing Boston Marathon this year had their own success.
