But you're still not a marathoner. Darn it if I see with words run, runner and race, and don't see walk anywhere in there.
The only thing challenging about walking for 26 miles is contending with pure boredom. And if it really is that much of an ordeal for you it's likely because you're fat and out of shape, which is the last thing that a "marathoner" is.
