Start off small, running about two miles a day. Slowly increase to 3 then 4 then five, etc. 'til you can handle about 20. Also, eat EXTREMELY HEALTHY and make sure to exercises every day if you don't have the time to run. Lastly, drink lots of water throughout the day. That should help. Good Luck!

Running.. how can I reduce strain on my knees?

If you have never run a marathon before, it will be very difficult for you to train without help. I would recommend looking around your area for a marathon training group...most areas have them, where you train as a group...you'll have a professional that will set a training schedule for you and monitor to make sure you make the correct benchmarks.

I would also suggest getting one of those GPS runner's watches...you can keep track of exactly how far you are running on a daily basis...it will interface with your computer and give you some useful feedback.

If you are genuinely miserable?

well marathons are techinically 26.2 miles so your doing a 24 mile race unless your mistaken. but stretch often, and always before you go running. make sure you run a lot. eat healthy, lots of carbs. dont chug water while your running or in short breaks between runs

Train hard, don't miss a day, even if you feel like you can't be bothered as one day will lead to two and then it will be difficult to motivate yourself.

Re-runs during March Madness?

I would really get your cardiovascular fitness up. Try jumping rope for half an hour to about an hour everyday. 10 minutes of jumping rope equals about 30 minutes of running.
