Hello, Im just passing through my mid life crisis and have boasted to the world that I will run a marathon before I reach 42 yrs old (12 October 2013). I didnt receive the reaction I was looking for so I went on to deliver a sub 4 hour time....much to family and friends amusement. Good job Im doing it for my own satisfaction!
Im just looking around for something to sign up for and I wondered if some marathons are easier than others.... Im in the first week of running (again!) and it tends to take a few months before Im running 8 minute miles for 5 or 6 miles on nice cross country routes. Im not too worried about building up the mileage (I used to run 3x6 miles, 1x8 mile and a 10 miler each week). But I dont really enjoy a lot of road running and prefer woodland paths.... so does anyone know of any marathons that are on gently undulating soft springy paths that will help me to achieve my goal?!
