while rich is entirely right that most anyone can go from 0 to 60 (2 miles to 20) in the space of a summer, i will merely note that:

1. i had a dear friend train and complete the marathon will maintaining a pack a day cigarette habit. 2. this whole barfing / blood pee / uncontrolled poo thing is WAY overdone. i'm not saying it doesn't happen, it just happens a whole lot less than you'd think listening to gross out reports. now blisters and chafing - that happens.

i'm kinda a nut about exercise (it keeps me sane - no joke) and i do many kinds. but none of them come close to running in terms of general sense of health and well being (plus lungs / blood / heart).
