Preparing for the 2010 ING New York City Marathon on Nov. 7, Subway spokesman Jared Fogle sought out some much-needed training advice for completing the grueling 26.2-mile course. Who better to ask than '09 NYC Marathon winner and world-class U.S. distance runner Meb Keflezighi?

Keflezighi spent a day with Fogle, sharing tips and tricks about running. Both men have been training for New York for several months, and even though they are miles apart in experience, it's a difficult event, regardless of skill level.  Keflezighi says, "A marathon is always a challenge; you never know what is going to happen. I feel like my preparation has gone in the right direction, and no matter what the competition fields are, you got to compete."

After a training session with Keflezighi, Fogle admitted, "My goal is just completion. This is my first attempt at doing [a marathon]. I don't really care what time I come in, as long as I cross that finish line."
