Do Marathons Wreck Your Knees?

The following article caught my eye, Do marathons wreck your knees?

As with many claims about whether running causes damage to your body, it seems like the research so far is inconclusive but it is an interesting debate to follow. I can’t say that I have had any serious problems with my knees so far but then I have only completed three marathons. Maybe that will change in a few years after I have completed more marathons.

What do you think?

  1. I’ll take the risk that running may damage my knees, however in my opinion my knees have gotten stronger since I’ve been running consistently.
    I’d rather have knee surgery when I get older then heart surgery from sitting around all my life and not running.
