About Marathon

The Marathon, as we know it today, commemorates the spirit and valour of the Greek soldier Pheidippides as he ran from a battlefield at Marathon, Greece, to Athens in 490 B.C. Legend has it that Pheidippides delivered the momentous message “Niki!” (“victory”), then collapsed and died.

It was a fitting tribute to the legend of Pheidippides, when a 24.85-mile run was organised from Marathon Bridge to Olympic stadium in Athens in the first modern Olympics held in 1896. At the 1908 Olympic Games in London, the marathon distance was changed to 26 miles, the distance Windsor Castle to White City Stadium. The total distance was increased by an additional 385 yards so the marathon could finish in front of the royal family’s viewing box.

Our Other Trainers

It is very important that you learn to warm up correctly and slowly. This happens only when you have expert guidance. Let’s have a look into

As a runner it is useful to cross train, which is to do a mixture of different activities not just running. This is especially important if you are new to sport as too much of one activity can cause repetitive strain injuries and, until the body is strong and well conditioned, repetition of only one kind of exercise should be avoided.

A good sports massage once every couple of weeks during your preparation stages for the half marathon will also be very beneficial, but do make sure you check out the qualifications of the practitioner! A good sports massage eases out the toxins from your muscles and aids/speeds up recovery from training.

Sports Massage
Training on cement or tarmac is harder on the body than running on grass, sand or a treadmill. Please be careful not to do all of your running on these hard surfaces as although you get a sense of running faster on roads it does create more strain on your joints , so try to mix up your training and run mainly on softer surfaces when you can.

Juul pods are the new trend in vaping. They are becoming more popular because of their unique features plus the fact that they are disposable. There are many brands in the vaping market, but one of the best shops we came across selling Juul pods is Eliquid Depot, you can visit them here to check out their wide variety of Juul pods and vape juice.

The Juul is a disposable device or portable vape system that houses a 280mAh battery, along with a nicotine salt strength of 2% or 5%. Each juul pod features 1.3ml of juice and gives approximately 300 puffs. This keeps you vaping all day.

  • There is a wide range of flavors to pick from
  • You get over 200 puffs from each pod
  • You don’t need prior e-smoking experience

More Affordable

The number one reason why Juul pods are so popular is that they are pocket-friendly and easy to buy. Juul pods are usually priced at around $6, while vapes and one bottle of vape juice can cost as much as $60.

With all these prices in mind, one would easily conclude that cigarettes are cheaper than vaping alternatives. However, taking into consideration that cigarette sticks are single-use and Juul pods can be used up to 200 times, our initial conclusion is thrown out the window.

Better Variety

One of the most exciting things about Juul pods is the great selection of flavors that leave you spoilt for choice. Juul pods can look just as cool as they are highly customized. Even though there is a wide variety of flavors available, there are numerous choices with e-liquids and juices. Some of the flavors you can get with Juul pods are Strawberry, Cool Mint Watermelon, Peach, Pink Lemonade, the Orange, Mango, and Guava combo (known as O.M.G), Pomegranate, and a host of others.

With vaping, you are not exposed to the chemicals resulting from burning a cigarette, and you get to spend less when you use Puff Bar Disposables because they are cheaper.

It is also important to state that vaping is harmless, and it clears any form of health concern you might have. It’s safe to say that a lot of heavy smokers have attested to quitting smoking through the help of vaping.

Juul pods are easy to purchase per unit and whenever you purchase in bulk, the cost is usually cheaper.
