Beating the post-Reggae Marathon letdown

I've been running for years and know that sometimes there is letdown after a good race or big event.  It’s more than just the adrenaline, it’s realizing that I've achieved my goal so “What now?”  The post-race letdown feeling is not in your imagination. But while it’s real, you are not alone and there are buy orlistat 240 mg some effective ways to deal with it.  This article from is a good overview on post-race letdown.  And in this forum post in Runners World, runners share their feelings on post-race letdown and offer suggestions on how to deal with it.

For me one of the best ways to deal with post-Reggae Marathon letdown is of course get back to just ‘running’:  slowing down, enjoying being outside and taking in the scenery.  It’s what I enjoy most about running.

Another thing that I find effective is re-reading some of the great Reggae Marathon race reports from Reggae Marathon fans.  First is the really detailed race weekend report from  Navin Sadarangani who ran Reggae Marathon on December 3 and the West Palm Beach Marathon on December 4.  Check out Weekend of Marathons.
