I am a PhD student at Temple University, in Philadelphia, PA, and also a marathon runner. For my dissertation I have decided to look at first time marathon runners (newbies) and their motivations for completing a marathon. If you have completed your first marathon in the past year, I would love to hear about your experience. Listed below is the link for the online survey. The survey will take about 10-15 minutes to complete.
