Brief running history: I ran the FLM for Charity in 2007 in 4 hours & 29 mins, just 1 minute ahead of my target. I had trained for the event using one of your plans, although up until that day had never managed to run over 15 miles without stopping. I am ostensibly a "fun runner " & the atmosphere on the day got me round probably more than my training plan.
Reason why we should train you: So this time, I have a ballot place & I so want to make the most of the opportunity that I have & to run it in a faster time. I do run with a running club but can never keep up with the faster runners so just don't seem to improve as much as they do. I feel that the extra coaching would help me to achieve what I know I am capable of doing ...I just need a bit more help than some ! I have the enthusiasm and the commitment and so want to be able to knock off those 29 mins.
Predicted marathon time: Forever hopeful & with your help - 4 hours !
