    Training for a marathon?


    I have considered training to run the Boston Marathon, just so that I can say that I did it. I am not a runner, but I used to run a lot in high school. I would have to complete another authorized marathon in 3hr 10min to qualify.

    If I decided to do this, would it completely kill my chances of building muscle? Would I even be able to lift 4 days a week?
