Remember the olden days of blogging?
(waves cane, shouts GIT ON MY LAWN, and invites you to come sit a while.)
Back in the day, we penned very few tips posts.
(I’ll give you a moment to recover from your shock.)

Hence the question mark in my post title.
This is not a post listing ‘Tips for your first marathon!’ but a query.
A seeking of tips for first marathons and, more specifically, my first marathon.
The one I’m walking.
