What's Marathon Medicine? (pkg)

February 15, 2013

  

The 26.2 with Donna Finish Breast Cancer Marathon in Jacksonville, Fla., is this weekend and is the only marathon in the country where all race proceeds and donated funds go to breast cancer research and care for those with the disease. Mayo Clinic receives 70 percent of the funds and almost $1.9 million has been contributed to Mayo in the last five years.

Now, running a marathon takes time and dedication ... and no matter how much you train, you do need to pay attention to your health. That’s why the 'medical tent' is a key element of every marathon. In this report Vivien Willimas covers the health issues unique for endurance runners.  [TRT 1:36]
