Hello, I am an 18 year old male runner who has a dream or becoming a world class runner. I have been physically active my whole life and have only just taken an interest in running. I don't currently have a proper pair of running shoes as I have just started out. I am running with trainers which other people have said to me that they are noticable heavy. I currently run 8 miles in 1 hour (with a good ammount of energy left...) This was on road and most of journey was flat. I am training for the 2014 London Marathon where I will be aiming to gain a little respect by finishing in the top 1000 and hopefully be given a starting place which is in the top 500 at the 2015 London Marathon. Do you think I have the potential to make it as world class runner...eventually or do you think that I should be running further then 8 miles at my stage in my life if I am going to make it at high level.
