Question: Are you competitive when you go in marathons? Like trying to reach in a good place, or breaking a personal record?

    I'm almost never (I'll explain the almost in a sec) competitive in relation to other people, but depending on how I'm feeling and how well trained I am I will look at PRing. Last weekend I succeeded in that for a half marathon, shaving more than 4 minutes off of my previous best time which was 10 years ago. I was still in something like 1250th place though lol.

    Only one time have I been competitive - in a 50k a couple of years ago, there were two people ahead of me, and at some point they went off piste, and so around halfway through I found myself in the lead (the aid station volunteers told me). So the rest of that race I spent looking over my shoulder worried about getting passed. I ended up winning, but it probably would've been more fun to just enjoy it and not care.
