Glad to hear 8.5miles at this stage isn't too far off the mark.  I live in West Lothian so might try and get into Edinburgh and run round Arthurs seat a couple of times within the next week or two and see how I cope.

I didn the EMF 10K last year and the organisation of it was fine but I heard the half and full marathon was awful.  I'm going to do the EMF half this year (unless the R&R half puts me off for life!0 so I hope they have sorted it out for this year.  

 Cormorant, well done on getting a spot on the Great North Run...exciting, imagine the atmosphere will be fantastic.

The route of the EMF half is super fast and actually quite enjoyable running along the sea front... One of my favourite races...if only it wasn't so far away or such a shambles.

Isn't the pub the main reason for putting ourselves through this???  If you put your logical head on 13.1miles is a car journey...a taxi would work out quite expensive so you'd take the car...and yet here we are all set to run it.  It's gonna be grrrrrrrrrreat.

I didn't want you all thinking I'm a p*sshead this early in the game Ian lol, but yes the pub is the only reason.

Nothing to be ashamed of Caz, that first post-run pint is as good as it gets!

Off out for a 10mile run today, hills at the start and then a nice easy downhill section all the way to Starbucks for a well deserved hot chocolate...and maybe a sneaky wee bun teehee.

The pub we went to after last years EMF half served some really good nachos as well Ian...mnom mnom mnom nachos & a nice cold pint of lager can't beat it.
