Why run the marathon at age 16 ? Sounds not wisely. Wait a couple of years and see first how fast you can be at the shorter distances.

I’ve been thinking about completing this distance for awhile, but haven’t been doing higher mileage until now. I am 16 and in highschool so I have all summer to train and double as I like. I am building up to 60 MPW for track, so I’ll have a decent base already for this training. I will have 10-12 weeks to train as soccer starts in september. My goal is sub 3. I have already bought Daniels and Hanson’s marathon/running editions. I am wondering if I should look into anything else? Thanks.
