When some students in Montgomery, Ala., return to school they will begin a fitness program that will have them covering the distance of a half marathon -- 13.1 miles -- by October. During the first few months of school, students in kindergarten through fifth grade will gradually run 12.1 miles, before taking on a 1-mile course in October. "This will benefit them physically and teach them perseverance," said Kaye Porter, a physical-education teacher at Peter Crump Elementary School.
