Can somone please tell me how to get this achivement. I've gotten all the terminals lots of times, but I've never gotten the achievement. Is there anything specific I need to do, like play on a certain difficulty, or beat the whole level?

There are a total of eight terminals in the game. You only have to find the first seven, however, to get the achievement titled "Marathon Man". The last terminal is unlike the others and makes reference to Eric Nylund's book, "The Fall of Reach", a small Easter Egg.
If you are not all that interested in the storyline of Halo, just skip over the terminals instead of reading them. The purpose of these terminals are to delve deeper into the storyline of Halo, and to award you an achievement.
So, the first three terminals are on the level "The Ark". The second set of three are on the level "Covenant" and the seventh terminal is on the level "Halo".
IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to get the achievement, you MUST view THE FIRST SEVEN terminals from START to FINISH. This means that you must activate the terminal and watch it until the green arrow on the botton turns red, or until it says "Fragment Ends".

You have to be on at least Normal difficulty and like darkish said wait until the whole thing turns red and you get redirected to another screen.

I don't want a big car, particularly. I have no need for acreage, and I don't like the fuel bills. But I don't want a small one because they're all like supermarket own-brand cola: weedy imitations of the real thing - Jeremy Clarkson
