Hello all. Im a new member to this page, and am looking for some advice. I completed my first half marathon yesterday (liverpool) in 1hr 50mins 22sec, which i was reasonably pleased with, im 41 years old and have always wanted to run a marathon but never had the time to train. Im now fortunate to have friday mornings to myself so started doing short runs through the week (evenings) and doing a 12-15k each friday morning. And fealt that i still had a bit in the tank when i crossed the line yesterday. However, im mindfull that a full marathon is a massive step up, would anyone be able to offer advise on the best first timer marathon in the UK, preferably this year. And what sort of distances should i run on a friday to prepare for the full 26 miles. Im looking at the Manchester marathon next month, but not sure if its too soon, plus i was hoping to do one that offers a bit of scenery (no offence manchester), but on the plus side it is a flat course apparently. Any advice is appreciated. Steve
