So i've been away from home for a week, been out doing some running to help with the boredom, the legs feel good, breath all good, so thought lets sign up to a couple of races, no booked on a 5k, a marathon in November and now an ultra in Feb, could an adminastrator ban me now before i sign up for an ironman!

Wow. I've just entered.

Re-assured to see that there are a few of you that (Like me) are looking for it to be the first Ultra.

Not sure whether to be excited or scared now......

No need to be scared, just keep moving forward

I did this as my first ultra last year, was pleasantly surprised at how I managed the last few miles beyond marathon distance, and there's a nice downhill to help you, at around 27 miles, support was good from the many marshalls on the day and I'll be doing it again

Ekgo, Good posts, like the one from page 1 and looking forward to the downhill bit now

Cheers also John M, definitely one mantra to remember

Must admit, haven't done a "race" over a 1/2 marathon distance before now and the last 1/2 was in 2008, mind you I'm now up to 20 miles distance as of last weekend so the training going ok so far.

Anyone else run Barefoot or in Vibrams just out of interest?
