Ive been running for 5 years. I started because I wanted to loose weight. (back to that later) I was 18 stone and clearly remember the day got to the top of my stairs out of breath.
I ran my first marathon London that year but sub 4 was never on (4.21) It took 5 more goes but finaly ran sub 4 in Nottingham in 2009.
A fresh challenge was needed so off to South Africa to run Comrades in 2010. 10.23 and a bronze was achieved.
And now the future I have a place in London and want to set not only a pb but break 3.40 which will give me a C seeding for this years Comrades. I hope it may also the spring board to run a "bill Rowan" sub 9.
I still love bad food so no I need some help to achieve my target.

its starting to hot up.......i'mtempted to go and book a marathon
I'm not doing any ultras for a year jason........i am being very strict with myself next year and focusing......
Keir - you have so much knowledge (and some pretty impressive PBs) - what could you possibly gain from having a RW Forum Mentor?
the mentors are secret until they are revealed
jason i have done a 50miler and a 47 miler each year for the last 3 years as well as a few others...........
i'm concentrating on triathlons again next year.i need to change focus all the time as i get brored with the same training
keir - I agree, you're too fast already. You could be mentor not mentee.
i don't think he is to fast to be mentored........as long as there is someone amongst teh mentors who can take him on........
there are faster on the forums and its not all about speed
agreed, its about improving the mentee, Keir knows a thing or 3 about endurance sports already, he'd be a good mentor.
I am a mum of 5 kids (16,15,12,11 and 7) and a full-time teacher who loves to run.
After dabbling with running for 6 or so years, I upped my training game last year to smash my 10k target of 50 minutes.
2012 has been a year of PBs for me:
I was delighted with all of the above other than the marathon as I was aiming for sub 4. I had an 18 week plan (too long?) running 5 days a week, which I stuck to like glue, even in the hottest of hot in the south of France. I didn't skip a single session....so what went wrong? I didn't really speed train, I just went out and ran each session..fuelling...well, I did my best...nutrition...I DID try and read up...the reality is, I need some support and guidance to make sub 4. I know the potential is there (look at my times), it's the knowledge that's lacking...
I have a place in the Manchester Marathon
Oh..and I forgot to say...I have been sharing my marathon journey with the kids at school...so I need your help to continue to inspire them to exercise and to be enthusiastic about sport..I've guaranteed them I'll run sub 4 in April!!
I NEED YOUR HELP!
Minni.....thanks for mentioning this on the Asics 26.2 forum thread. This is an excellent opportunity. I will have entered my marathon and applied for Forum Six by the end of next week if unsuccessful.
