Continuing to make gains while training for an endurance for example a marathon.

currently training for a marathon as well as sticking to my weight lifting. Had plenty of comments that I will lose all my gains during this period. is this false? Can't you still continue to make gains as long as your nutrition is on point? And is there a specific weight lifting style that should be followed? 

Your gains will be hindered. Marathoning is extreme. Focus on one goal, either gains or endurance. Aim to simply MAINTAIN when going for a marathon. You will lose a ton of gains with extreme endurance training, that's a fact
