When I ran my marathon, I gained about 20 pounds because I just ate whatever, whenever. I think that you'd be lucky to just maintain. But that's my opinion. Losing weight may take some more "expert" advice. i think I've seen an article in runners world. You could search on their website: runnersworld.com

I just finished my first marathon and had the same problem. From what I've read it is difficult to lose weight and train for a marathon due to the energy needs. Maybe you can focus more on cutting calories on your cross training days?

Hi All! I'm new to this team and I think it is great!!! I'm currently training for my first full marathon in May 2009, in Ottawa. My problem is that I also want to get my weight down, but I'm struggling with cutting calories and keeping my energy up for training... On the weeks that I lose weight, my running is so much harder, but if I pack on the carbs, I can run forever, but the scale gets stuck....Any tips????

Ha ha and of course I mean Marathon training as a topic, not marathong...LOL...
