Is 3:30 unrealistic for the first time marathon runner? (Read 1804 times)

    A 3:09?  That's quite a debut!  Good race!

      Nice job, David. Congratulations!

         The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff

          Reading others' discussion, I think no chance to get a place using that BQ time. So I am not planning to go there next year.

          5k - 20:56 (09/12), 7k - 28:40 (11/12), 10k trial - 43:08  (03/13), 42:05 (05/13), FM - 3:09:28 (05/13), HM - 1:28:20 (05/14), Failed 10K trial - 6:10/mi for 4mi (08/14), FM - 3:03 (09/14)


          I'm back!

            I think it's too early to say yet. If they enlarge the field, as seems likely, then probably anyone with a BQ can get in. We will have to wait and see.
