    Thanks for sharing! Here is our great free marathon training schedule and an accompanying 9-part video course that new runners might find helpful What we like about this plan over others is that the training plan is customizable to your race date and has exact times based on your fitness and goals. Plus, the video guide really helps explain the philosophy and answers a lot of questions runners have. Good luck to any new runners of the Disney races in the future!
