Well slap my thigh and hoist my mainsail. Great stuff indeed. I think you'll smash it with the dedication you've proved you've got plus the guidance from "above". Enjoy it.

Knight Rider.
Congratulations on getting through the selection and we will all watch with interest as you go through your training and onto Paris, it will be so interesting for me as I am also entered into Paris and am looking for a 3:15 time as well, but coming through a different schedule programme to yourself,  so that will be fun to watch.
Your short distance times are very quick indeed,  so as long as all the other bits drop into place and you are well and healthy then I think RW have chosen wisely with having you on-board, and I would put a few ponds on you at this stage to do well come race day.

again best wishes and good luck.

Congrats KR, should be fun Saturday, this is going to be loads of fun.

O I'm going to blatantly steal your profile idea above

Brilliant! Well done, Knight rider

Congratulations, good luck!

Congratulations KR, I will be avidly following your forum looking to pick up lots of handy tips! Does Retford Half feature in the training plan again? I've entered as it's still my Half PB course.

Well done KR. For those of us left with VLM, what does the calendar look like? Who gets to go first and by how long, so who will be in taper madness when the others are still knocking of the last LSR?

Great news KR
15/12/2011 at 14:09

Excellent news KR.  You've got the credinitals at all the shorter distances so no reason why this journey can't help you to a new marathon PB.

Good luck with everything and I look forward to hearing about it through your thred

Well done KR! Will be great to meet you properly in London on Saturday x

Oh and I might have to steal your background idea too

Well done KR.   A very deserving candidate and I am sure that breaking that 3.15 will be made all the sweeter next year as you can hobble around afterwards looking at the beautiful Paris scenery (or the inside of a few Paris bars). 

Enjoy the experience mate.

Congrats to you.......must have been that Asics seriously well done and hope all goes well for you. I have the same problem running nutrition being abit of a light weight and the second half is where I fell apart last time I ran a marathon. I am training for Edi mara now but while being slower than your good self will be interested to see how you get nutrition advice for the marathon.

All the best.

Congrats KR. top news indeed.
15/12/2011 at 17:29
Well done KR!!! Much deserved....Look forward to the journey....

Isn't this exciting?  Its like being at a party at Knight Rider's house!  Love your choice of music btw.

I'm really interested to hear what you learnt about core strength at boot camp KR. 

15/12/2011 at 17:57
Well done KR! I was looking at the shortlist before voting and was like 'I recognise that name from somewhere'! Good luck with the training and I may be stealing some tips for my own sub 3.15 campaign at London

Knight Rider: well done and I look forward to following this thread.
