"I was on track to run a 2:13 marathon a year ago, but then I got injured. My best time so far was 2:16 a couple years ago. That was all while working full time. So I think I can do it. I just need the opportunity. What I hope for is financial support so I can work out full time. Technically, it's so I can properly rest between workouts. I can break two hours. I have the knowledge. I have the discipline. I have the right attitude. All I need is the opportunity to train full time for one and a half to two years. Eighty thousand dollars is nothing. Countries and organizations have spent millions trying to accomplish what I can do for mere pocket change. Maybe that's why I keep running all of the races: in the hope that someone will believe in me."
