This thesis is designed as a guide to runners wishing to run a marathon. Topics discussed in general are training techniques, the physiology of running, nutrition for runners, stress as it is related to running, and one's personality and running. The purpose of this thesis was for the author to learn about the general topics previously mentioned and by doing so learn about herself Also the experience of running a marathon was both a mental and physical challenge. The thesis is based on suggestions from other sources and from this author's one-time experience of training for and running a marathon. The author concluded that by running a marathon, one learns much about oneself, and she also concludes that if the experience was ever repeated, some modifications would be acted upon.
