Many runners dream about being able to take part in, and finish a marathon - the 26.3 mile race still has a mythical, almost heroic dimension for those that take part. Participating in your first marathon demands long, progressive, and almost professional preparation, but this can be achieved by nearly everyone with determination and motivation. This volume teaches readers not to look at the marathon as the ultimate challenge, but to consider it one of the achievements that can be made by taking up the jogging lifestyle - along with becoming fitter, reducing stress, and increasing energy levels. "Marathon" is packed with expert advice on all aspects of jogging and marathon running - including how to start training, how to progressively improve your condition, avoiding injuries, and nutritional information.
