Have you set a new half marathon PB in the last 12 months? If so....

I've asked for male because we already have the female runner sorted and so that is why I have said men only on this posting.

Yeah, you're probably right.  OK, let me know when you've given up trying to beat my HM pb and I'll let you know what marathon training you need to do.

 etc...

Literatin, Roeby, do you go up to people doing surveys in the street and start querying their ranges as well?

How did you know?!

Actually in the street I studiously try to look like the kind of person they don't want to talk to. But if I were trying to get specific types of respondent by posting a thread on here I would probably put some of the criteria in the thread title or subtitle.

Anyway I've only done 5.

I've grown accustomed to the averted gaze of the market researcher, I don't think I matter any more.

Set a 1/2 marathon this year at Fleet and have run at least 10 others over the years, always satisfying to run faster as you get older, maybe a bit wiser and training more consistently.

Set a half marathon PB 2 weeks ago in what was my 14th race at that distance. Started running 4 years ago.

I fit this, but I'm not quick so maybe not what the OP is looking for.  First Half was 1hr55 in 2007 and that time stood until October 2012 (1:50).  Then I broke it again in February 2013 (1:47) and March 2013 (1:42).  I've done 8 in all.

I've done 8 - until last year my PB was 1:35 set in my first in 1982. Last year 30 years later I got a new PB of 1:29. I'm not really interested in appearing in a magazine though. The magic difference was doing more training and in a more structured way.

adrian, interesting story line...i've done 21 halfs from 2002 to 2013 and the 21st was the fastest...

not sure the mag needs my gruesome mug in it though

21??!  I've only done 7.  Step up to the proper distance, you wuss!
