    I like the Doubler. I'm too small for the terrible 275... Sad face. :(

    You left out an important part of the marathon story: Pheidippides had run 150 miles in the 2 days leading up a battle, FOUGHT in the battle, and then after the army's victory he ran the 26 miles to Athens to tell the citizenry that their army was victorious so that the defeated Persian army could not simply sail to Athens ahead of the Greek army and convince the city that the Greeks had lost.

    Also, your argument against running as a fitness activity is based on a false pretense. For the same reason that the bench press has a bad reputation (people with bad form hurting themselves) despite being an excellent lift, you can't say that running is not useful to the average person's fitness simply because a lot of people do it wrong. Cardiovascular fitness is important in every major sport, and while running may not build a great deal of muscle, holding a 6 minute mile pace for an hour will burn you about 900 calories, depending on how much of you there is to carry. Hell, the earliest form of hunting performed by humans was chasing animals until the keeled over from the heat (our sweat glands make us more efficient at venting excess heat than other mammals).

    TL:DR It's fine if you hate something, but you just look silly when you don't understand the thing you hate.

    If they both make it to London, it's a toss-up.
    Let's not loose the real point of a good article behind mindless marathon bashing: says an elite level distance runner AND avid lifter.

    My favorite observation "Did you ever notice most "joggers" tend to look the same? They're either skinny and weak, or completely overweight and injured." That's just 100% truth no if's and's or buts about it... Anytime I incorporated long distance running in my Weight training programs I have almost immediately observed a loss of strength and size.

    Considering that sprinters peak in their early 20s (a time I am already past) and that marathoners are able to remain competitive long past then (Meb Keflezighi, the winner of the 2012 US Olympic Marathon Trials, is 37) I'm pretty sure I would choose to be a marathoner.

    For those of you praising this article, you should really consider the fact that has no scientific data, no list of references, and based on the final sentence, is really just an advertisement for the author's book.

    I'd give this a 1/10. If you're this bad at trolling, maybe you should head over to Pinterest where your targets are a little bit easier.

    When ever my clients or people that i have seen run long distance will always be a lot more prone to injuries like ankle or knee and sometimes lowerback now i know its because muscle imbalance and bad posture mostly but when i tell them or force them to stop they are healed within months no more pain or fatigue by thousands or countinuous steps/reps. Its just bad for your joints. And i am talking about elite athletes here i wont recemmend anyone long distance slow jog/run unless he/ she is a compatitive long distance runner. Most people dont understand that when doing speed and agility work the power and force generated by body is much higher the metabolic effect is on a whole new level. In most sport enviroment there is no place for long running its not practical. Now if you really wana run find a hill and run up the hill now graviry is your new enemy. Even i do it once or twice a month just for fun sake.

    And i used to run 4 to 5 miles almost everyday so i have great personal experince. The article has some good basic ideas if somebody had showed me this article 5year back my views would have been the same as yours are now.

    275 is an easy deadlift for most but I think it's probably out of reach on the bench for beginners. Anyone who can bench 275 probably has enough training to have their own opinions about cardio, running etc, and IMO, they're entitled to them by that point.

    275 bench and dead sure... But plus 75 to dip and chins??? Fuark!!

    Watching the Olympics now and most of those sprinters and pretty jacked, but big quads def make you faster. Now most of the marathon runnings I've seen do look pretty frail. But to each there own. I prefer boxing for my cardio.

    I bet if I looked I could find a dozen articles written for Iron Man competitors that say exactly the opposite: big muscles won't help you win a marathon, 100 km bike, & 10 km swim race. And it would be true. Point being, there's more to being strong than looking strong. I think the previous comment that said the author is just trying to sell his book are probably accurate. It's a totally biased article, not even close to being factual IMO.

    "As strong as they come". What does that mean? AFAIK Benedict Magnassun is the world's strongest man, but I bet he'd get his ass handed to him by a reasonably good amateur fighter. Does that mean he's not the strongest? Yes it does, if you think the strongest person is the best fighter.

    There's lots of ways to be strong. By all means pick your area and develop it to the fullest, but don't make the mistake of thinking it's better than someone else's version.
