    Love her hair!! You need to make a guitar that is inspired by, and combines elements of her hair color and shirt.

    It's not that bad to be honest. Just begin simple and short with 2 or 3 kilometers. Walk when your body tells you that running is no longer wise. I've started to pick it up again and yesterday I topped out at 4KM; walked for one and ran the final Km. On sunday I'm betting that I'll manage 3km running, 200m walking, 3km running.

    Just don't push yourself too hard going for that last 20%.
    The original Marathon runner is said to have finished his run, uttered a single word, "Victory," then dropped dead.

    With most long distance endurance type stuff the event is pretty damaging to your body. So you'll do a ton of miles in the lead up to the marathon, but usually in shorter stints to reduce stress. If you can do 80% of the distance at the pace you want in training, you can squeeze out that extra 20% on race day when you need to . . . it's mostly a matter of stubbornness and power of will. This is assuming that marathons are like long distance cycling stuff . . . I did a 200 km randonneuring event on my bike without ever cycling more than 160 km at a time before the event and it went fine (exhausting, but fine).
    Well I was meaning in a cumulative sense, which of course is about impossible to answer for most because they've set their baseline-endurance very high through a lifetime of distance running (in some cases). What is really crazy are those ultra-marathoners running like 100 miles or whatever. They might actually log some standard 26m marathons in the weeks leading up.

    This reminds me of that Terry Fox movie on HBO way back. That guy was doing huge distances on most days, like maybe close to regular marathons when he could, all on one leg essentially. There is also the ESPN doc about that, I think it was one of the 30-for-30 series.
