Mike Murphy shows the way

Wednesday 8th April 2009

Mike Murphy broke the three hour barrier with a splendid 2:58:36 at the Rotterdam Marathon on April 5th. This should spur on the others in Malcolm's training group who are eyeing the same target in London.

Like Mike, Andy Bone, John Marinko, James Miles and Erica Martin have all been following Malcolm Kemp's sessions and all have their eyes on that magic three hour mark. It’s perhaps slightly more difficult in the larger event but all are going well and expectation is high. Also in the group is Dave Carter whose ambition will be to break 2:30. Good luck to them and all the other Phoenix athletes competing in London.
