Hi everyone, Thank you for reading my Journal. My name is David. I am 41 years old and my goal is to qualify for the Boston Marathon by running a sub 3:20 marathon. My goal marathon is the Kiawah Marathon on Kiawah Island, South Carolina December 6th 2008. I set this goal after finishing the Kiawah Marathon in 2004. Keys to achieving my goal in order of importance: 1. Stay healthy 2. Lose 15 pounds 3. Average 65 mile per week from now until the race. 4. Have a good training cycle using Daniels' Plan A I discovered the WISH board by listening to the DIS Pod cast. I have been lurking a bit. I love the advice and support you guys offer. I am going to post a little background on some of my ups and downs since the 2004 Marathon.
