  • I know smokers that run! It takes conditioning, you have to run at least 4 times a week, increasing your distance every few times.

  • Sure, running as a smoker is better than not exercising at all, but believe me when I say that you have diminished lung capacity and will probably never be able to be competitive with real runners because of it. Not trying to put you down, but as both a runner and a former smoker, I speak from experience. Unless you have some sort of superlungs, lol, you'd be a better long-distance runner if you could quit smoking.
    Good luck either way!
