Perhaps I won't be alone at the back then in a fortnight!!

As I rode in to work this morning I saw that the mile numbers have been repainted on the road in nice bright white and the advance warning notices are up for the motorists. Now I'm starting to feel nervous!

I ran the first bit of the course on Saturday, but turning onto the heath just as the road starts to go up Wilverley hill.....oh dear! I hope I go faster on the day than I was going then! I shouldn't really have gone that way but I had to deliver something and it was the best route.

I drove the last section of the marathon course on Sunday, I wish I hadn't now! Its not too bad, nothing too steep or too long but a lot of uphill sections which by that stage I will really feel. The last mile and a bit is all flat or slightly down hill so there is something to look forward to:-)
