Can you imagine having run 123 marathons in your life? That’s just what 69-year-old John Farah’s done, but incredibly after his first marathon, he was sure he’d never do it again.

Farah outlines his story in this CNN article, where he tells of the frustration of his first marathon and gives advice on what to do to make sure your first marathon isn’t your last.

It’s all about pacing and taking occasional walking breaks, he says. Even talking to your fellow runners helps in getting your mind off of the pain.

These are things he didn’t know when he ran the first time in the Detroit Marathon. “I was young, cocky, and pretty stupid,” Farah said. Now, decades later, Farah continues to go strong and not even his 123rd marathon is likely to be his last.
