Discretion is the better part of valour. And running away is byfar the better part of discretion.  So, I will forgo the Athlete's Village and have reserved actual accommodation for the weekend.  A whole 100 metres or so from the start so no issues with festivity participation if such lightweight curmudgeonry is to be permitted?

Must absolutely not drink cider the night before! Two beers is my limit on a marathon eve.

I'm camping, I've even washed the sleeing bags. I'd better start doing some training then I guess.

I def won't be as prepared as I want to be but that's life.

So far this week my training has consisted of looking at hills and saying "ooo, that hill looks steep. I think I'll run that when I feel better." Mr by eck (or who ever I am a travelling with) then reaches over to check I am not still running a temperature.

I ran twice up and down our local hill last night. Total ascent about 800ft and I was shattered. Long way to go for me, I think

Good response Steve WHEN not IF

I ran up anddown a very little hill on Wednesday. Still it was probably the furthest I've ran all year.*

*not really very true.

I'll get there by hell or high water. I've been watching marathons for years, and it's about time I did one

I can walk 26 miles no problem, but I'm determined to run most of this. We have a regular argument at work about what constitutes a marathon runner. My answer is always anybody who gets round within the time it would take to walk it

I ran the Silverstone HM today in a PB of 2.17.07, which I'm delighted with. However I've learned two things. Firstly that I have a LONG way to go to do a marathon, and secondly that I need to find some stretches or something to help my lower back because today hurt
