See the other Dublin thread on this Forum!

Am also a 1st timer

yeah get there for about 8am. The street that you are going to stand in is surrounded by tall buildings and any sun that might be around won't shine on the street so it is FREEZING! Wear something warm and disposable (to throw away).

How did you all get on??

 I thought it was a great day, fantastic weather and great atmosphere.

This was my first big race and I found it very difficult to get my pace during the first half of the race, so many people catching my heels and catching my elbows, nearly hit the deck many times, found it very challenging.  Would welcome advice for future big races.
