How do marathon runners suppress pain?

Marathon runners train their bodies so that they are prepared for the 26.2 miles of running. Each mile run during training helps condition them for the challenge. However, when the pain hits, the battle becomes more mental than physical. The unique thing about marathon pain is that there is a completely effective way of stopping the pain - you just have to stop running. Not a very good option for someone trying to finish a marathon. So in the end, the marathon isn't so much about suppressing pain as it is running through it.

If I am walking then I must be running but if I am running I may be walking What am I?

You may be an entrant in a Marathon (26.2 mile) race. The entrants are called runners in the race, but, while many can and do run, some may have to walk for part (or all!) of it. Even so, they are still Marathon 'runners', which means official participants in the race.Quote: "More than 17,000 people run in the Los Angeles Marathon every year." ~'Marathons' eHow.comSo, even if you are just walking in the marathon, then you must be one of the runners, 'running' in that event. Similarly, and to put round the other way, even if you are running in that race, you may actually be walking, for at least some, if not all, of the full 26.2 miles. In fact, many people are happy to just walk the entire distance. This is acceptable and within the rules."Run the Marathon! Can't run? That's OK! You can walk!"
