Celebrities make everything look easy, but when it comes to marathon training, they’re just like us…for the most part. Running 26.2 miles is no easy feat, but as Haruki Murakami, marathon runner and novelist put it, “Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.” Here, stars of all shapes and sizes give pointers on how they train and what motivates them to go the distance. You might not get a chance to work alongside a celeb—but you could get a glimpse of what it’s like to be in their running shoes.
In this special-edition of The Fit 5, two mixed martial artists, Johny Hendricks and Jamie Varner give us an inside look into living life as a pro fighter.
