I’m Philip Goose, a runner with a passion for the marathon distance, with a marathon PB of 2:44:04. I only started running properly in 2011, and in that year I ran my first half in 1:42:06 and my first marathon in 3:54:44. Since then running has become a huge part of my life and I’ve been getting faster and faster every year.
My current goal is to get my marathon PB down even further and achieve a championship qualifying time to go off just behind the elite start at the London Marathon – that will require a sub 2:45 marathon or a sub 1:15 half. Update: done! Time to set a new target…You can also read updates on my blog (www.allez-goose.com), follow my runs and rides on my Strava profile (www.strava.com/athletes/philipgoose), updates about running and a host of other things on Twitter (twitter.com/PhilipGoose) and on my Instagram (www.instagram.com/philipgoose.)
