Is 3:30 unrealistic for the first time marathon runner? (Read 1803 times)

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

      Nice job, David. Congratulations!

          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 (Sept 30, 2012)

          7k - 28:40 (Nov 18, 2012)

          10k trial - 43:08 (Mar 29, 2013), 42:05 (May 05, 2013)

          FM - 3:09:28 (May 19, 2013)


          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.
