How do I train for a marathon or half-marathon? Nutrition? Schedule? After successfully completing a marathon, what about maintenance so I can run next year's marathon?

You can look at nutrition diets on the internet, they have lots of those. Fruits and vegetables are obviously very important, and to maintain a healthy diet is crucial.

Of course you want to start training by running medium-easy distances and increasing from there. It also depends on what distance you are running, for instance training for 5K's is a lot easier than training for the larger marathons

Professionals can always help, I'd suggest you find a local one.

Train well!
