A "Marathon" is a long-distance run of 26 miles 385 yards, or 42.195 km.
On Oct 29th of this year, 2007, I completed my first marathon, the Adidas Dublin Marathon, in the capitol of the Republic of Ireland. It was also my first race, and despite finishing in the mid 6,000 range, I am very proud to have completed it. Initially, after completing it, having one long pint of Guinness, and recovering for a few days, I was very eager to talk to other marathoners, specifically those whose done the Dublin Marathon, but really anyone. I looked around the net, but I didn't find anything specific to the Dublin run, so I filled the gap. My site, DublinMarathon.net
