WIB - that's a little imprecise.......

My advice for all nosey runners would be to suggest you attach a carrot to the end of a stick, tie the stick to the end of your nose, and then spend the marathon trying to catch up to the carrot...

Sorry. I should have done a lot more with the information provided. I bow to your superior knowledge of the classic carrot and stick approach to racing.

1.  Try the Chester marathon thread on the Events forum.

2.  Find a 4 hour marathon training plan off RW or a dozen other places and stick to it. Or carrot to it, if you prefer.

Does this mean that if I give you good training advice, you'll start reading my newspaper and peering in through my window?

I think chocolate would work better than a carrot, I can't see myself chasing after a carrot. Anyway, I thought carrots were banned at marathons now.
