Can't wait for this one!
Also going to do the double again next year, Brighton then London the week after as I managed to ping 3.08 on sunday which should be okay for a GFA start at VLM2013.
Taking a couple of weeks off training to recover this time though
OK, I'm in! All signed up and definitely not starting in the blue coral next year!
Think I'm going to keep up the training all year, unlike last year where I didn't run again until 3 weeks before the Beachy Head marathon in October! Will enter some shorter races and work on my speed a bit as I seem to just run at pretty much the same pace regardless of the distance!
Pretty sure this thread will be even more popular than the 2012 based on recent posts!
Good luck to all those training hard or about to start training.
Toby3 (and family) - enjoy the rest of your holiday in Brighton. Hope the weather picks up a bit, today was awful. Tomorrow's not looking good either and I've got a 190 mile round trip to Ipswich!
Ah decisions, decisions. I did this in 2011, watched it this year feeling totally jealous of the runners! Filled in half the form then thought £55!
It would be ok if I'm still living in Brighton next year but steep if I need to get accomodation too. Can anyone remember whether more places came available in the Autumn? I'd rather make the decision on whether to do it then.
Hi Hannah i see you found us there were a lot of very good PB this year i ran 4:00:28 and took 13 minutes of my PB but there were people that took even more of and a lot of first timers that went sub 4hr
Hannah were here till Friday but not all day as we are due to catch the train home on Friday morning we had a nice relaxing time here this year as we went for a self catering flat instead of the bedsit we have stayed in the past 2 years it’s been great as it meant we could get up when we like eat when like and what every we liked
Don’t get me wrong the bed sit was nice but i never felt like you could just slump and then there was the add expense as you had to eat out all the time as we only got Breakfast
Forty i have to say i never got black toe nail this year as i started to use foam toe protectors they meant to stop your toes rubbing together and getting blisters
but i have an unfortunate habit of making a hole in the top of my running shoes were my big toe rubs through so i have been wearing them i have to say all though it did not stop the problem completely i have only worn a hole in one shoe this time on the right foot the left is fine
And i have not developed black toes nails on either foot this year
Green Fairy it looks like at the moment like this thread could turn out to be bigger than last year but will give it a couple of week for all the excitement to die down and see where we our then
