I ran London Marathon this year but only managed 3.23 so I ran the Belfast Marathon 3 weeks later and ran 3.10.
Belfast was much hillier so I think with more training I could get the 3.05 on a flatter course.
There are a few photos of the race here:

I know that the jump from 3.05 to sub 3 is a big one but I think I could do it.
I'm 40 next January so time isn't exactly on my side but I have the dedication and a good coach, hopefully that will get me there. Fortunately I am still improving even though I took up running relatively late aged 32.
I'm running on a Cheetah now, but started running on a modular 3 (Ossur foot similar to a vari flex).
The Mod 3 was a good all round foot and I did a 3.29 marathon on that one but I find that the Cheetah gives much more shock absorption allowing me to run longer distances with less discomfort.
Thanks for the links by the way. I have seen those before, but it's difficult to find websites with amputees road race times.
