Have you run more than 6 half marathons and got a new PB

My name is Adrian Monti and I’m one of the freelance writers for Runner’s World.

For an inspirational piece for a forthcoming issue focussing on half marathons, we are looking for a specific case study.

 Does this sound like you:

 Are you male?

 Have you run 6 or more half marathons in your running career?

Have you set a new PB in the last 12 months?

 If that does sound like you, please do get in touch for some help with this article which will appear later in the year.

 Please email me at adrian@montimedia.co.uk  

I really look forward to hearing back from you

Why do you have to be male?

08/05/2013 at 17:31

cos it wouldn't fit his story line if you were a blonde bimbo with great long legs

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

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

Half marathon PB set 1995, not beaten again until April 2013, 35 or so races later!

He's probably got girls already.

did you stop running for 15-18years?

Typical in  these  survey  research things  you have to be male

08/05/2013 at 20:08

why don't you check the other threads the OP has started Pammie, and re-think that?

08/05/2013 at 20:16

Bit Harsh Stevie

 

How many people go and read what  other threads the  OP has started

 

 

08/05/2013 at 20:20

yet from reading one thread you thought you could say it was "typical"

08/05/2013 at 20:21

Stevie G, I ran at least one half in every year between '95 and now except 5 ('97, '99, 2000, '02, '03)... training was rather haphazard at times, but has been increased steadily since 2004...

Harsh stevie, I think pammie was saying typical of research rather typical of the OP. 

And it is typical of sport in general to focus on men.

I think the OP should clarify why it is only men. Is it sexist? Or have they got their quota of women already? 

08/05/2013 at 20:30

That's what  I mean kaffeeg

There's been countless of threads here  over the years similar  threads different posters  asking respondents to be male.

 

Or maybe its to do with the varying  changes in  a womans cycle

The only time I can find the OP looking specifically for female runners was when he was writing about dieting...

Except for the full page spread with my ugly mug on it.

everyone knows that the marathon is the last resort for those who have given up on getting faster at the shorter stuff
