When I did my first full marathon I hit the wall hard at mile 19. I had to keep telling myself to remember relentless forward progress - no matter how slow. The feeling of crossing the finish line made up for it. A marathon really is a 10K with a 20 mile warmup LOL.

Two years ago I did a marathon after not running or competing for a number of years. I hit the wall, but I kept hearing the voice of Dory in "Finding Nemo," "just keep swimming, swimming..." over and over.

This article could not have been timed better. I ran my longest run today ever, 14 miles, and there were numerous times that I waned to hist stop on the treadmill and just throw in the towel. Thank you for reminding me that I am stronger than I believe and giving strategies to help me get over the wall,

Frankly I think overriding your body when you are driving it too hard and its begging for rest, is terrible for your adrenals as well as your entire body.

Guess that's why I don't run marathons!

I definitely know what you're talking about - everyone who has run a long race can pinpoint exactly when they hit the wall. For me it was at mile 18 during the Philly marathon. I kept going because I was running with a friend and didn't want to hold her back, so that's another good way to motivate yourself - be accountable to someone else.

This is my first comment on any article. I've been working on diet/exercise since Jan. and losing ground lately. It was the perfect info at the right time. THANK YOU!

This was really appropriate because when I hit the wall, I feel bad enough already - lightheartedness is like a second wind. Especially loved the bribery suggestion, LOL.
