Hi all, A quick intro, I'm Dave 42 years old and in a bit of a fix, a mate of mine was due to run a half marathon in 7 weeks but has had an accident and won't beable to run.
So he asken me if I would take his place, now we've been mates for years and I had to help him out, he's raised quite a lot of money for charity and is really gutted he can't run.
The problem is I've never done any real running before, I went out last evening and managed 4.09 miles in 50mins a mix of running and walking.
So my question is am I mad to even try this or if I train for the next 6/7 weeks is it possible to complete the run?
All advice/comments welcome
