Here's a few:
Sometimes. Most runners take care to use the restroom before starting the race. On some occasions, runners have dropped out of the race, temporarily, to use the facilities provided along the race course.
Some few incontinent runners will wear special undergarments to avoid embarrassment, although this is hard to disguise in most professional running apparel.

Most standard marathons (26.2 miles) cut off at 6 hours, so you need to keep at least a 13.7 min/mile pace (or run faster than 4.367 mph).
If you are expecting to qualify for bigger events, you need to aim to finish in around 3 hours.
what was the fastest time in last years boston marathon
Through the 2008 Games in Beijing, that is Juan Carlos Zabala of Argentina who was 20 years old when he won gold in men's marathon at the 1932 Games in Los Angeles.
In 1907 he won the Boston Marathon in a record time of 2:24:24 over the old 24-1/2 mile course, four minutes and 59 seconds faster than any of the previous ten winners of the event.
There is no actual proof that this occurred at all. Many say that his running from Marathon to Athens was only partly based in truth.
But if it did occur at all it would have been in the same year as The Battle of Marathon, which occurred in 490 BC.
It depends on the pace you are running (relative to the pace you are capable of running).
If you run at full race pace, you can run two (or perhaps three) marathons a year without long-term damage. If you run at an easy pace, you can run a marathon every month without long-term damage.
At an extreme, a superbly conditioned runner going at a VERY easy pace has run marathons on 50 consecutive days.
A marathon is a race that is 26 miles in length. At least 10 percent of women run marathons each year.

The amount of time it would take an individual to train for half of a marathon is determined on the individual's level of physical fitness at the start of the training. If the individual has no fitness level, it would be safer to start slow, as not to hurt yourself. This type of training should be expected to take anywhere from 3-6 months.
The men's world record for the half marathon is 58:23 set by Eritrean athlete Zersenay Tadese in Lisbon Portugal in 2010. The previous world record 58:33 was set in 2007 by Kenyan athlete Samuel Wanjiru. Source www.iaaf.org

Blood in the urine is called exercise related hematuria. It could be harmless or a symptom of a serious problem. Have your health care professional check you out Myoglobin is only found in the bloodstream after injury. Have your HCP check this also..
In US marathons held during 2012, the average finish time for men was 4:18. The average finish for women was 4:43.
There are 46112 yards in 26.2 miles. 26.2 miles x 1760 yards/1 mile = 46112 yards 1 miles = 1760 yards
There are 25,000 spots for runners in the Boston Marathon each year, and qualifying times vary by age. For males, qualifying times range from 3 hours and 5 minutes to 4 hours and 55 minutes, and for women, qualifying maximums range from 3 hours and 35 minutes to 5 hours and 25 minutes.
Phidippides, I believe. But you should probably check wikipedia...
There is a problem here - Pheidippides was dead by the time of the battle. He had run to Sparta to summon them to help Athens fight off the invading Persians. On his return after running nearly 200 miles, he died of exhaustion. Meanwhile the Athenians and Plataeans stayed in the hills around Marathon where the superior Persian cavalry could not get at them, waiting for the Spartans to arrive. On the tenth day, the Athenians saw the Persian cavalry being embarked on ships, and took the opportunity of running down and defeating the inferior Persian infantry on the plain, caught without their cavalry protection. After this battle, the Athenians realised where the Persian cavalry was being shipped to - around to Athens to disembark and gallop up through the gates opened by traitors. The whole Athenian army - all 18,000 - ran over the hills the 26 miles back to Athens and formed up in front of the city just as the Persian cavalry was disembarking. Frustrated, the Persians re-embarked and went home. It is this run by the 18,000 after whom the Marathon run of today commemorates, not the already dead Pheidippides as is commonly claimed by peddlers of a 'good story'. The real story is far more interesting and evocative of admiration. The reality of the 9,000's feat is enhanced by the fact that they ran in sandals carrying armour, shields and weapons, and their staple diet was bread. Rather different and more challenging compared to the conditions of today's pampered athletes. But with their city, property and families as the prize, they had a compelling incentive as well as unrivaled guts.
The type of shoes the runner has, what the runner ate before they ran, if there were any hills to run up or down, and if it was hot or cold outside or inside.
