How does a 3km run turn into a full marathon......

My first ever 3km run was back in 2018. When I heard an advert for surf to stadium, I thought to myself running 10km must be like running 3km but a little bit further....... lol.... first ever 10km run was a few days before this 2018 event and I thought... oh crap. I hope I can run 10km....I went for said run and completed it in 1 hour 10 minutes....... on event day I completed the run in 1 hour 39 seconds......chuffed to bits

My next thought which I was trying not to think was running a marathon must be like running 10kms but a little bit further......

Christmas 2019 I said I was going to run the marathon in 2020..... (I might have had a few too many beers before committing to 42kms)......Do I need to thank Covid to not doing it in 2020.... however my brother in law Sam kindly reminded me last Christmas by writing a book about me and my marathon..... well here I am and running for charity. Otago Regional Helicopter Trust. Please get behind me to push me along the 42km.
