Mon Dieu what eez happening?

My name is Colin (Knight Rider) and I've been on the forum for a few years actively taking part in discussions, giving advice where I can and trying to inject a bit of humour here and there.

I'm really excited about the opportunity of being part of the Super Six for 2011 in Paris.

Now for a bit of background: I have been a serious Club runner for the past 8 years and enjoy competing for my Club whenever I can. After nearly 20 half marathons I finally stepped up to the marathon this year in London and finished in a respectable 3.22.10. I was pleased with this time for my first attempt but also disappointed at not getting near the 3.15 mark I knew I could. With a Half marathon PB of 1.25.26 in 2009 I know a sub 3.15 is a realistic goal for me with the right kind of training and coaching. In the lead up to London I also managed a 1.26.10 half marathon in early March and hoped I could achieve my marathon  goal. Not sure if I overtrained near the end or whether my nutrion or endurance played a part, but I'd like the chance to be able have a professional input into my training.

Having Steve (in his 35th year of marathon training) or Bud (20 years experience of coaching) as a mentor and coach would be an immense opportunity for me and one that I hope I can translate into a sub 3.15 marathon time in Paris.

I have got a few good ideas (don't want to give anything away just yet) to add to the forum if I get picked so I hope it would be an enjoyable experience for both myself and others too and I hope to see you on the journey for a Spring sub 3.15 marathon.

Thanks for reading this thread and don't forget to to vote for Knight Rider!

Bon Soir

Cheers Artie, keep trying.

I believe you can only vote once in each time category.

bikermouse, I had another go this evening and managed to get through

disenfranchising voters worked for Dubya, maybe one of Knightrider's opponents is a megalomanic too?

the sub 3.15 vote has no connection to Wiki leaks, so can the hackers please restore it back to normal.

Oh, and while you're there put a couple of votes on for me

09/12/2010 at 20:19

My vote is in for you.  

Good Luck

I'll vote for you, but want to see some more Hoff pics first. In fact, I might hold out until you post the YouTube clip of Hoff singing 'Looking for Freedom' at the demolition of the Berlin wall

Keir - your wish is my command!

I've been looking for freedom
I've looking for one of those jackets…
Dare I promise to run the Paris marathon in one like that?
No I wouldn't - only the Hoff could carry that one off!

It's quite catchy tune - no honest.

Cheers Martin - it's gonna be a tense week till next Thursday.

I'm getting ready for marathon training regardless of the outcome next week as I have a place for Brightono on the same day - 10th April. Went out for a 10 miler tonight. Plan was to break it up into chunks of 2 miles easy 8mm then 2 mile at marathon pace 7.25 than a mile sub 7.00mm. It went okay and managed it in 73.41 which actually works out at 7.22 pace and a very nice pace for Paris!

My vote is yours!

Good luck! Hows the campaigning going? do you think if were struggling for votes we could join forces and form some sort of running coillition!
