Can't wait for this one!
Charlotte good luck for Sunday
And to anyone else that is running my your leg be swift and your times be good but above all enjoy the day
must have another go at the ballot again this year when dose it open
Following booking my place for next year yesterday, I have also booked the Preston Park Travelodge. So thanks for the tip earlier in this thread on how to select the dates into next year on their website!
Hi there! I too have booked my place to run in 2013. Did 4 hours and 10 mins for the last one. So hopefully can sneak a sub 4 next time. Really impressed with most of the forum members times and how well they did on the day; especially Toby3. I stayed at the Holiday Inn along the seafront which to be honest wasn't great. Some of the rooms are dirty and the hotel needs updating urgently. Being along the front is great for most things except the start of the race.
Anyway, just thought I would say hi, and hopefully this forum can motivate us all to keep plodding the streets.
I am a new poster to this forum. Having gone and done something daft at the expo and pre-registered for 2013 to keep Snowmaiden company. The longest race I have ever run before this is the Bristol 10K, although I have run/walked it for the last four years.
We are currently still in Brighton - as my husband (Toby 3) ran Brighton Marathon last Sunday and we are enjoying a holiday by the sea - as the closest seaside to us is Weston super Mare where there is never much sea to see.
I know it's mega early but I've also just booked Preston Park Travel Lodge. £60.40 for Sat and Sun night!
GCE - You may not be liking stairs now but Beachy Head Marathon has a massive set of steps on the way round!
Can i please be part of this as I was being brave when I just entered!!!
I would love any support ican get.... My hubby doesnt run and is one of thoes who doesnt get it??
Kelly - Welcome on board the thread. You'll get loads of support here. Must say, it helped me hugely building upto Brighton last week. First Marathon?
Lombster - I've glanced the Beachy Head website three times today, i think its lookign highly lightly I'll end up signing up for it. i run with the Serpentine, who do regular Saturday hill run sessions in greenwich park I could join in preparation?
I'd exhausted my run shoes, and just threw the smelly old things away after last weekend, regretting it now, hate wearing in news shoes. I always throw away shoes after a marathon.
Are VLM still doing guaranteed places after several years of rejection? Does this till count if I'd previously ran a charity place?
Hoping to get back out running Saturday, hopefully a weeks rest is enough.
Thank you all for the good wishes. It is nice to know there are others in the same boat as me.
The weather is much brighter at Brighton today. When Toby3 wakes up might see if we can go for long walk to other end of course near the school as we have already walked to Shoreham on Tuesday. Be good to see how far out of Brighton you go past the Marina.
Good luck to anyone who is running the London Marathon on Sunday.
