Any marathoners out there?

Hi, all!I run track/xc for a D1 college. I typically run about 45-55 miles/week and I've recently added about 40 miles of stationery biking/week (I'm taking an indoor cycling class this semester). I'm graduating at the end of April and am considering doing the Pittsburgh marathon in May - I'd like to finish in under 4 hours.When I do distance runs (6-12 miles), I typically carb up before the run and then disconnect from my insulin pump until I'm done running.

I haven't had a really good long race for a while. There's a group, diabetics who run marathons, that has some regular runners who are really awesome!!
