In brief: Sure, if female :)

If you are female, yes.
However , you must not be training and dieting so much that you shut down your normal period and cycle. Also, how close to menopause are you. Check with your gyn md if in doubt. Regular marathon training is not usually an issue. Extreme endurance, extremely high intensity training can seriously affect your systems.
