Hello! I’m the editor in chief at Wired. Never coached anyone. Am slower than most people on these boards. But the article about Boston is based on interviews with some pretty smart folks and a couple past winners of the race.
The last long running piece I did—on my efforts to run a marathon in less than “two hours plus my age in minutes”—is here: https://www.wired.com/story/aging-marathoner-tries-to-run-fast-after-40/
This was a SOLID read, congrats on the PR. I love the point about running fast throughout the week. More mileage, mostly always helps, especially for us non elites, training the engine pays off. If you're a time crunched parent, tossing in some intervals really does give you a serious ROI, if executed properly.
