Hi there, I’m Floris Gierman, founder of extramilest.com. This site is all about marathon running and reaching your full potential in training, racing and life.
Many athletes want to run a Sub 3 Hour Marathon, Boston Qualifier or Marathon PR, but they don’t know how to accomplish this. You’ve come to the right place!
I ran my first marathon in 4 hours and 11 minutes and it was a miserable experience. Over the years I improved my times and my current PR is 2 hours 44 minutes at the Boston Marathon. On this journey I’ve learned how to become a faster, healthier and happier athlete. I’m sharing all this here on my site.
Recently I launched my podcast “The Extramilest Show” with strategies and mindsets from world class athletes, coaches, best selling authors and me. Enjoy!
