    Born to Run by Christopher McDougall changed my life and I can guarantee it will change yours. Go get audible and download that book. Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback @ammarxz on instagram.

    Ammar has struggled with discipline and focus for his whole life, so a few months ago he decided to sign-up to a marathon to force himself to train and run everyday. But as the weeks went by, his mental health deteriorated and he failed to train. He almost gave up on the marathon but 3 days before it was happening... Something incredible happened, he changed his mind and decided to chase the impossible.. Run a marathon without having trained.

    Every Friday we send you a 1-minute read on what we've learned from starting a business, seeking discomfort, and living a more fulfilling life:

      No training? Any one who has run a marathon or is considering running one knows this is a complete fraud.

            This wasn’t inspiring at all. You didn’t put any work into preparing and you ran a horrible time. This doesn’t count as running a marathon because you did it at walk-in speed and didn’t challenge yourself, it is way more challenging to train for months in advance (even if you don’t run a good time). This is a disgrace to the running community and I can’t believe people are actually giving you support in the comment section.

              Yes but why?

              Is being disrespectful to your fellow runners by not doing any training a sign of an alpha male or something?

                  Even though I really like this challenge I wouldn't do it on my own. Not because I am afraid not to make it, it's because I've heard from several people who did a marathon with out real training and had serious post injuries because especially the knee needs time and training for morphological adaption to handle those efforts

                          Two friends that signed up for a marathon years ago and pretty much hadn't run a day in their life. They had no idea what they were getting into. They both finished in under 3:30 😒.

                            Pure bullshit. This guy put himself in a misery jog-walk attempt during 26 miles showing no respect at all for the distance and this beautiful sport.
