You're a Star!
In the interest of science and in promoting a healthy lifestyle through physical activity, Nova has been granted an unprecedented opportunity by the Boston Athletic Association to explore the remarkable transformation the average person undergoes as a result of training for a marathon. Exercise scientists, doctors and nutrition scientists at Tufts University will use sophisticated technology to monitor the physical transformations the participants undergo. State-of-the-art animation will allow viewers to explore changes taking place inside the body and out, and personal diaries will reveal the highs and lows along the way.
To be eligible, would-be marathoners must:
*Be age 21 or over
*Be attempting to run a marathon for the first time
*Not currently be engaged in a regular exercise program or routine
*Be able to participate in training runs in the Boston area on a regular basis
