A month before my 40th birthday (2005), I finished a
goal of running a marathon in all 50 States and DC
under three hours.  Like most of you, I have a regular
job and a life outside of running.  I was not a collegiate
runner and only four of my 100+ marathons are faster
than 2:50.  In my 20s and early 30s, I had marginal sub
3:00 marathon success because I wasn't confident in
my training and racing.  Not until I combined consistent
training patterns, proper workouts and smarter racing
that I started running multiple sub 3 hour marathons.

Training and racing marathons, at any speed, is hard
work and time consuming.  Start streamlining your
efforts and become a smart, confident marathoner. And
if you're not ready for a sub 3:00 marathon yet, start
Qualifying for Boston. Read up, lace up and enjoy!
