There is such a thing as overhydration - and people have died from it. Don't push yourself - listen to your body, and don't drink when it's saying "no more!"
The deaths have been from runners who have been told "drink! drink! drink!" and so they forced themselves to drink, drink, drink.
16 glasses a day doesn't sound safe to me, when the recommendation is 8, unless you're a REALLY heavy sweater, AND you're doing REALLY heavy work-outs!
