My goal is to run the Chicago Marathon in October 2018. I ran London in 2016 in 5:55:57, Berlin in 2017 in 4:21:02 and I want to break the 4:15:00 barrier this year. I'm 51 and only took up running 3 years ago when I was almost 18 stone and feeling desperately fat and unfit!

Fast, flat course with huge PB potential!

Fastest marathon in the world, Berlin holds the most world records for men and women, and is one of the 'Big Six' world marathons.
My 3rd Marathon Major!
I'm 51 and used to be a teacher until 4 years ago when I discovered at 18 stone I was on the verge of having a stroke. I quit teaching, got a dog and joined a gym. The first day I couldn’t even run 100 metres on the treadmill, so the next day I went back and did exactly 6 metres more and every day I did a little more. 10 weeks later I completed my first ever half marathon. Now I run a website called RunForit.today and organise everyone-friendly races to encourage other people.
