The journey to completing a marathon is a complicated one.

In this video, Niall Breslin answers some of our community's questions around nutrition and training and encourages you to park the ego, slow things down, and to answer the question 'What if this doesn't work?' with, 'Well, what IF it doesn't work? What have you gained in the process?!'
