I have always wanted to run a marathon, but have never got around to it. I'm not getting any younger either and at the succulent age of 25, I thought it should be a good time to get it done. I want to take suggestions from the GB community on anything from training or who I should run for, because why should I run 26 mile for no reason. Lets make money for charity!
So I have a year and a half before the 2014 marathon (I'm not going to even dare attempt to be ready for the 2013 marathon in march) so by then I need to find a charity and get fit along the way. The idea so far is to find a charity then set up and Just Giving page as well as a web page with more info. Plus to anyone who donates £1/$1 can add a song to the playlist I will be running too (I'm going to need four and a half hours of music)
Over the year I expect the plan to change so this is just a rough draft. I'm even open to running it dressed as a gaming character.
So please, throw questions and suggestions at me and lets talk about it, lit by computer screen light.
P.S The Math
26.2 miles = 42.2 Km, an average 4.5 hour time would need me to run at 1 mile every 11 minutes with time to spare.
