    • If try running a big race as a total beginner, you are bound to be humiliated. Enduring a 26.2 mile route is all about crossing those small milestones. Take it one step at a time, set challenges for yourself, track your progress, and - succeed.

    • You can't expect to be in shape to run 26.2 miles if you're consistently 1,000 calories over your daily goal. Get a fitness tracker to see your net nutrition intake each day with exercise stats included.

    • If you're planning to do your first marathon, taking small steps is the best way to get into shape without risking an injury by running 26 miles at once. You can train exactly for a marathon by seeing if you got what it takes to take on a half marathon run.

    • The marathon distance is difficult, so you should build up to the race over a period of time. For a marathon, you should definitely follow a training plan. There are several Apps that can help you get ready. RunX has training plans which are 16 weeks where you run a shorter practice race at 8 weeks. I agree with Antonio above - run a half marathon first.

      • Glad you agree. Many people try to go for a full marathon too quickly and then find themselves overwhelmed. So yeah, I couldn't have said it better myself :D
