Countdown to London Marathon 2010

Another year, another marathon. After missing out last year I’ll be running London once again on the 25th April 2010. Which is great as it’s a wonderful race to be part of, amazing crowds and a lovely flat route.

My training has kind of started. Well, having been off running for about five weeks I’m now back on it again but the thigh strain (or whatever it is) that kept me off is still niggling. Oh, and I’m running like an old man – much fitness to regain.

I’ll make no secret of the fact that I’m trying to run under three hours this year. I came close to that in London 2008 and still think it’s possible but I really do have to focus this time around (both in training and in the race itself).

If you want to keep track of my progress I’ll be recording every run with my Garmin. You can glance at the Garmin website or follow daveharteruns on twitter.

  1. Good luck, I echo your grumblings about injuries my body feels like it’s in crap shape lately.

    Are you seeking sponsorship ?

  2. Actually I should have said that my place at London is a ballot place so I don’t have to raise sponsorship for my place. However, I usually raise some funds but never really put my mind to it until the last couple of weeks. Watch this space but if you know someone who needs to raise funds to secure their place then I’d put a few quid their way rather than mine.
