Running in Beijing

I'm a potential ex-pat from Ontario, Canada, and visiting Beijing in a couple of weeks. As an avid long-distance runner, the air quality is of course a concern - can anyone comment on running in Beijing? I'm training for the Chicago Marathon (October) and Boston Marathon (April), so would need to run up to 32km Protected content at a time. Is this at all possible in the city, given the pollution, summer weather and lack of parks?

Thanks!
