RE: What does it take to run Sub 3 hours?
I ran a 2:53 marathon during the same year that I ran the half in 1:18:48. I only had a 3 month marathon build-up, and never ran above 50 miles per week. I am 6'2 and weighed 162 lbs, so I am arguably not built for the marathon distance. If you are smaller and lighter than me, and you train 70 mpw, I can easily see you going 2:45. It will depend upon your body'style ability to adapt to the higher milage, and your willingness to suffer for that long. Good Luck!
