Marathon Running

Great essay by Hayley Birch on why she trains for marathons. I’m not there yet running wise. I’m not sure I want to be, but I know I miss the drive of training for the half marathon I did back at the beginning of March. It also has a tangible accomplishment at the end complete with a pretty medal. In academia, when so much work is rewarded with more work, scant praise, and almost never more remuneration, running races seems less crazy than you might think.
