Completing a marathon is a marvellous life-achievement. It can even be argued that it is one of the few major life-achievements still accessible to the "ordinary person". Without lots of time and money, one cannot mount a circum-polar expedition, sail the Atlantic, or scale Everest. But we CAN all run a marathon, with proper training and preparation. And it is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives.

Like the less-accessible challenges, the marathon is one that should not be undertaken lightly. It is a 4-month, 6-month (or more) commitment that pays dividends in spades!

We want you to enjoy your Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 16, and to do so we recommend training! It REALLY helps! And very often, actually physically going to a location and training with a group of runners/walkers at the same level as you with exactly the same goal and aspirations, can make a HUGE difference.
