I am training for another marathon and only have 26 full days left. This is the first spring marathon I've ever done and the training has been by far the worse. Between the extreme winter we have had, blisters, and the flu (still recovering) I'm very nervous that I'm not going to make it. Any tips are greatly appreciated. I have my last lo g run (20 miles) Sunday.

If you can run 20 miles you can run a marathon. So don't worry.

Stay motivated! You have 26 days left which gives you time. Stay positive! I'm sure there will be others out there doing their first marathon too. Work on breathing while running and you can do it! Good Luck :)

Yes, thanks. I just finished my 20 mile run. I am happy that I made it, but not coming even close to the goal I set for myself. At least I should be able to finish tho. :-)

Lol yeah well that's just marathon training. Today is only 9 miles. It shouldn't be too bad.

Today I only did six :(

Six is a good number. I will be tapering down further this week and only two 3 mile runs next week. I signed up for another half marathon on June 29th. Just have to come up with a plan that allows me to recover and get back at it after this marathon.
