    anybody notice she progressively gets hotter as she gets closer to the marathon. Not just weight loss, like, she just starts glowing. Strange.

  • Fifaliana Rakotoarison

    This video inspired me to run a half marathon, I am somewhat fit but haven't done a lot of running, when i saw that she did a half marathon in 1h 37mn i thought i would br able to, but i finished in 1h 43mn, it's true that my half marathon had a lot of hills and sharp turns but, 1h 37mn is really good, she might be a novice runner but she was already really fit and had already really good endurance... I am happy this video inspired me, but this could be dangerous making people believe they can do this as a new runner

    well, if she running half marathon at 7.28/mile then that's a fair pace for a beginner... a very fair pace! I'm amazed she can pickup that training without an injury as well without actually being a runner.. if i try to just up my training I'll get mini injures, then need to back off, otherwise they become pretty bad and put me out of action for up to 3 weeks.

    I am 12 and I joined a group named girls on the run and we have ten weeks of training 2 days a week and have to run a 5k race. I don't know if I will be able to do it but I want to try to do it with my friends and to get fit I am skinny but doesn't mean I am fit. This is very inspiring so I hope I will be able to get through it and yeah! ❤
