    Right then guys - here's the news. Sorry I've been slow getting it to you.

    I did indeed win the public vote - so thanks to everyone for that. At 1:30pm this afternoon I took a phone call from Runners World asking me to be part of the ASICS Target 2014 team - training for the Paris Marathon in 2014 (April 6th). I will be representing the Sub 5 hour category so that gives me a 30 minute window to finish the run.

    I now have to travel to London on Friday afternoon for a morning at the ASICS Flagship store on Oxford street where I am told we will be kitted out for the training. I am also meeting my coach - Sam Murphy and she will devise a plan for me to get me there.

    I'm humbled by the support I've had through you guys and cannot thank you enough. I hope you will stay with me for the journey both through my blog and through the Runners World website (and my Twitter feed).

    Best wishes and thanks again,

    Gareth

    For those interested the links are as follows:

    The link to the final 5 is here: Runner's World UK

    The link to the Target 26.2 hub is here: Runner's World UK

    The blurb from the local paper is here: http://www.southwales-eveningpost.co...ail/story.html

    Next step is a visit to London this Saturday to the ASICS Flag Ship Store on Oxford Street. I guess now I am sponsored by ASICS. Here I will be meeting my coach - Sam Murphy and devising a plan as well as more gait analysis and some kit for the running. Wow.

    JUst thought I'd pop in to let you know how things are going. Last Saturday saw me at the ASICS Store in London where we were given £500 to spend on kit and trainers. What a day. Can be read about here: ASICS Target 26.2 – Day 1 – Store Day (The Story so Far) - The Running Geek

    Training started this week with my first 4 week plan appearing here: ASICS Target 26.2 – Training Plan (Sub 5) – First 4 Weeks - The Running Geek - it will appear 4 weeks at a time. We are now into the 16 week countdown to the marathon on 6 April.

    This week has been good so far. The weather not too great for running but I've managed to get out.

    Yesterday I took delivery of a new Garmin 620 watch - a gift from Garmin and Runners World. The freebies do not stop there - we have some ASICS body skins on the way and we've been told new trainers 6 weeks before the marathon.

    So with this in mind I have to say thank you to everyone who voted (several times) and got me to where I am at the moment. Maybe one day in another thread I will tell you what this means to me at this moment in my life. All I'll say is that I needed this right now.

    Best wishes and a merry Christmas

    Gareth
