Re: Best sport for me to get in shape?

Hear hear! for the sport you will spend the most time on! The last sport I spent quite a bit of time at was volleyball.

Hate to break it to you, but a marathon isn't half over till mile 20. The other thing is that while your three runs a week is pretty low, the thing to emphasize is one seriously long run a week (try to have a bunch of 20 milers before the race). PS.
