For those who are planning/thinking of participating in this race, just think once again if you have not been practising regularly for past one year. Few of runner friends had to say this:
“Seriously, man. It’s not worth it. You can cause yourself some serious damage doing that kind of distance. You should be a veteran marathoner (as in, >5 marathons) before you even think of doing that.”
If you have not done atleast 3 full marathons and feel like running the race get yourself checked with a doctor, practise for long hours to test the stamina.
Actually after my friends told me I have decided not to participate and look out for this next year. I have done only two full marathons till now and am not in top physical shape.
