This will be my fourth year participating in the marathon. I have always done the full marathon, and plan to this year as well. My biggest tip to anyone else is to make sure you’ve got plenty of snacks and that they are either prepared in advance or easy to assemble. I always spend much longer writing during each hour than I expect. For first timers, don’t be fooled! This is harder than you think! But so incredibly beneficial and enjoyable. And to everyone, remember, beware of the nap!
I wish the best of luck to all of my fellow writers! Not much time to go!
