What would motivate you to run a marathon?

Have you ever run one before and what was it for?

I dream of this. I feel that I will eventually do it. The timing does not feel right yet though.. every time I begin a running regimen, I end up sick. LOL. So, I am listening Divine that the time isn't NOW.

I would love to run a marathon! I know I will too...When I had Kerryn I ended up needing a C-section due to complications, so now that I am all healed, I'm starting up my workout routines. And man does it feel good to be working out again! I really enjoy things like running, hiking, swimming, playing sports. So my motivation would be it makes me happy, feel healthy, thriving, and alive.

Im not a runner. Have no desire to either.
The ONLY way I'd do a marathon(running) is if bulls were chasing me down or cars lol.

I'd walk one...for cancer causes.

I hate running. I'm much more of a swimmer.

I would love to one day, but I can barely run a mile without passing out. My goal is to try and do a 5K this October.

I'm not a runner either. I did do a SGK Race for the Cure before I knew better. It was with good intention tho.

I feel the need to say this. I have never ever ever been a runner. Let me emphasize the NEVER. Exercise in general.... Ew. However, Spirit has said that is changing and though its not here physically, I am dreaming about it now and have surrendered to it.

Nooooot a runner. I've thought about it, but that's the extent of it

I would maybe consider it if my life or Nevaeh's was on the line... But I'm not confident anything else would convince me to run

I would love to give it a go! BUT due to physical issues, have never been able to run. I'm hoping I get surgery to fix both knees in the next year so I can train and run them...just for the fitness level. Raising awareness and funds for charities would be good too

I'm glad I'm not the only non-sporty one.

I don't think I ever would either. There are causes I'd love to help if I had the money / ability and causes I do already help in other ways. I have sponsored people to run marathons, too. Personally I am not a runner either, also not fit enough to run. I never say never and like Terri has pointed out spirit sometimes steers us in new directions but as things stand right now I would not run a marathon, but would be open to a sponsored walk.

what would motivate me? Zombies... maybe a vampire....

seriously. I'm not a runner. I swim, I can play sports.. but I do not run (I run while Play.. but not just running). I used to run cross country, but I have crappy endurance. I do much better with short sprints.

I am not a runner. My breasts don't sit still enough for me to run.
