Not a troll just a dreamer. There is no way I can do it...but how would one attempt it?
Who is the slowest runner you know who actually pulled it off? How?
First off my goal isn't to qualify, but just to try and get closer. I'm no where near the standard 2:25-2:27 currently on a perfect day and perfect course is realistic. I can wrap my mind around running 2:24 in a dream, but honestly 2:22 sounds probably the fastest I could ever go unless something magical happens. I don't have a running pedigree so I can't offer up fast college times to boost my ego.
-I run about 60-80 miles per week.
-planning on a fall marathon to run around 2:26-28 This is pretty realistic if weather is ok.
Currently running a 1:11-12 half is pretty solid but not to awful and can be done during a normal training week with a very stable heart rate and not rested.
I know tons of people who dream about this ....so how would one attempt it?
