SpleenI have only done 8 (reaching 10 this year) so it is a little too early for me to talk about reaching 100. But so far I have used marathons to see the world a bit, both in the UK and abroad. I usually get bored on holidays but if there's a marathon to structure it around it's a different matter. So I feel that if I'm tired of marathons before I've reached 100 I must be tired of life - if there isn't anywhere in the world I could possibly want to go and run a marathon and combine with some sightseeing.
Certainly if I did find I was getting bored of them at around the 70 mark or earlier I wouldn't persist with them - plenty of other challenges in running, let alone the world. But if I was at 90 I'd probably force myself to find a few more.
During the Cheddar Gorge Marathon I overtook an old boy with a 100 Club vest and so I asked him "which number's this one". "Two hundred and sixty seven" he wheezed back. Mindblowing. If he can manage 267 without getting bored of them then I have no reason not to reach 100.
