Running a marathon is one of those lifetime achievements that thousands point to as life-altering – an accomplishment just as much mental as physical. Many times it is the culmination of years of repetition and sacrifice, training in cold and rain and heat, and a cathartic experience never to be forgotten.

There will be thousands of those stories that will play out on the streets of Long Branch, Asbury Park, Deal and many other towns as the New Jersey Marathon winds along in a few weeks. These are stories of sacrifice and years of training, all with a shared goal – finishing the distance and crossing another item off the bucket list.

There will be many who will point to this has a life changing event, a once in a lifetime accomplishment. Still others will chalk it up to another race along life’s path, a brief stop in a healthy lifestyle of physical fitness and activity. It is that mix of personal stories which makes the marathon such a compelling life experience, both for those in the race and those supporting them on the sidelines.
