Tom Brough of Chicago is a financial advisor who has twenty years of experience under his belt. He has succeeded by committing himself to being the best that he can be, an approach that has served him well professionally, and in other endeavors.
Tom Brough of Chicago has completed three Chicago marathons, and knows that as daunting a prospect running 26.2 miles might seem to someone who has never done it before, it is not only an achievable goal, it is an incredible experience.
He says that anyone who wants to run in and complete a marathon can only succeed by committing to that goal, one hundred percent. You cannot be half-hearted about it. And once you decide to enter and complete a marathon you have to devote yourself completely to the preparation. He says that as simple as it might sound, what you really have to do is concentrate on putting one foot in front of the other, over and over, until you finally cross the finish line.
There are countless marathons held all over the United States, but when it came time to choose one Tom Brough of Chicago kept it easy and chose the Chicago marathon. Once that simple decision was made then he got himself the necessary gear, and the most important thing was a good pair of running shoes. There are a lot of different styles to choose from, and he knows from experience that no one style works for everyone. He recommends going to a specialty running store and asking a clerk to help you find the shoe that is going to work for you.
After that, Tom Brough says you train, and train, and train. And on marathon day, keep putting one foot in front of the other, until you cross the finish line.
