    No, used to run but stopped when I was about 17 so never did anything beyond about 10 miles

    My Dad ran loads of them, though, all over the world. Had a best time of 2h19m, which is pretty good, this was in the 80s and early 90s.

    No/No.

    Used to detest anything over 400m at school (used to dawdle around with the fat & nerdy kids until I put a kick on in the last 100 to make sure I wasn't last) & promised myself I'd never run long distances once when I no longer had to.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Considering I dislocated my right hip joint 30 minutes into my first ever attempt, no.

    I have run three half marathons at 15 and 16 but not a full marathon, but at the time it was because I had to be 18 to run a full marathon.

    In my school PE lessons we usually have a few laps around my school's field (which is big) about a mile run. I mostly enjoy it.

    Used to do alot of long distance running at school, think the longest i did was 8 miles. However, my love life got in the way, and i've been faithful to the beer ever since.

    Nowadays pretty much collapse if i do 2 miles. Need to get back into some sort of shape that isnt round.

    Done the equivalent to a half marathon once, found it pretty tough, but that was probably due to the fact that I had done precisely zero training for it. Would contemplate doing one in the future.

    Yeah, I'd do one in the future, so long as I could find time to train. I'll do a half marathon when at Uni, I think, just decided now.
