Thanks for your comments @JohnP. After reading the article again I see your points. The article is full of author's emotions rather than objective facts;)

comment Is long distance running harmful for women?
My training goal is actually to prove myself that I can survive marathon... and I don't have excess fat to lose. As for the body type - I wouldn't like to lose my muscle mass but I see that long-distance running doesn't support muscular figure. Now I understand why it is called endurance training - you not only do lots of running but also spend extra hours in the gym not to lose your muscles and strength:)

Good point on trying rather than thinking, however, after reading the claims about the thyroid hormone I thought that maybe it's better to think first before embarking on a time-consuming training plan that could cause some harm. But overall I see that no matter what, strength workout is important. To be a good-looking (muscular) marathoner, one would need to devote lots of time to both, endurance and strength training.
