Boxed food and canned goods used to be a way for life for Shannon Martin of Martinsburg, W.Va. That's hard to believe when you see her teach a body pump class that would challenge the fittest of military men. "I weighed 205 pounds and at 5 (foot) 5 (inches) I was obese, I knew I had to make a lifestyle change, a big one," Martin said. "It's true what they say you are what you eat and my diet was filled with processed food. " The turning point for Martin was when she was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis.  According to MayoClinic.com, plantar fascitis is a painful inflammation that occurs on the sole of the feet.

For the casual runner, there's no bigger aspiration than participating in a marathon. Forget the aches and pains, the blisters, the sprained ankles and scraped knees. Each battle scar would be worth it, just to say you competed in a long-distance race. But most recreational joggers know it takes more than dreams to run a marathon. It also takes more than putting one foot in front of the other. It happens with dedication, determination and serious training. There are many lessons to be learned in deciding to run a half marathon or marathon, Dr. Mark Cucuzzella said, and one of the first is realizing that not everyone is cut out for endurance running.
