Just popped in to see how everyone is getting on.

Some great running as is usual and many other things beside.

Jimbob - fantastic achievement yesterday. It will not be long now before you break the 3 hours. You have been putting in a tremendous effort and really deserve it. Well done.

My autumn runs have not worked out the way I planned as life just got in the way.

I am in Paris as we speak and planning to get a run in down by the Seine later.

Paris is a little early for me next year as it looks like I will continue being a tad busy at work into the new year. So I am thinking of Edinburgh instead. I am also doing Chicago next year after having deferred my place this year.

I am considering adopting the Hansons Method as well. Have tried P&D but did not grow to like it. Anyone else tried this one before ?

All the foot pod -- lost GPS talk is stressing me out. My current Garmin isn't compatible with it, so we are talking a new watch + foot pod. $$. Any other options people use? I'm ok with losing gps temporarily but if it never came back, that would probably be the end of me, mentally.

On another topic, sorry if you've covered it earlier, is the course restricted? IE am I going to be able to have my husband jump in to run most of the last 6 or so mikes with me to pace me / keep me going?

Formaggio - which Garmin are you using? I've used a 110 without a foot pod and it was fine. Watch out though, the distance measuring isn't 100% accurate (tall buildings, weaving around etc). For absolute accuracy you can't beat using your watch for the time and checking it against a pace band at each km marker.

Shouldn't be a problem to have your husband join you towards the end, but he won't be able to cross the finish line with you. They do pull runners without numbers off the course at the last bend, so be prepared to run the last 0.2 miles yourself in a blaze of glory . You won't have any trouble with motivation up the final straight with the crowd howling like banshees...
