The LA Marathon is a great opportunity for amateur athletes such as myself to challenge ourselves, enjoy the ambiance of the event, sightsee the city of Los Angeles, meet the winners such as Ogla Kimaiyo (Kenya) here with Wolof Times reporter Sunny Moore from Wolof Times, and more importantly contribute donations to organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Students Run LA, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society etc… via our registration fees. I trained for 5 weeks by running a weekly half-marathon on top of my regular training. I managed to achieve my goal of running 26.2 miles non-stop with a time of 5h11min at an average pace of 11 min per mile, despite a scorching temperature of 96 F. I learnt on my first marathon that running 26.2 miles from Dodgers Stadium to Santa Monica is only achievable for amateur athletes via nutrition and hydration, and also that after 22 miles your overall body muscles are so stressed that there is a high potential for injury. It was a great experience nonetheless and I will forever wear my 2015 LA Marathon Finisher with pride.
