Good For Age place in 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon

Good For Age place in 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon

The London Marathon is one of those races that is too good not to enter – especially when it’s on your doorstep.  Having done the race 5 times, 4 of those occasions on a Good For Age place, I’ve felt compelled to always be around for it.  Which is also annoying, because there are some great marathons happening around the same time – Boston Marathon and Brighton Marathon (a little closer to home).

So, having just received confirmation that I’ve gained a Good For Age spot for next year, based on my 2013 London Marathon time of 2.51, I’ve agreed with my girlfriend that I’ll pace her to a sub 3.15 finish.  She initially wanted to go sub 3.30, but I felt she’s much better than that.  To which she replied: ‘I’ve been trying to go sub 3.30 for 38 marathons – I know what my limits are!’.

However, I told her that she’d never trained for one nor had me pacing her, so anything is possible!  Hopefully we’ll still be speaking at the end of the race!
