Hi Katrina - well done for getting back out there and finishing off something unfinished!
Hi Johnny - I did marathon du medoc in France. Great race but not really a race... as we stopped off every 2k for wine
I'm in for this. I'm really looking forward to it as I've been wanting to run around the Royal Parks for a while now. I'm not looking forward to the early start so much though... I'll be catching the 6.19 train up from Brighton to make sure I get there in plenty of time (factoring in for train delays!).
@Johnny - surprisingly; i didnt train with wine or anything like that... I just sipped at the glasses they gave instead of downing the glass
@Anne - welcome to the thread! How has your training been going?
Less than 7 days to go and i'm really looking forward to it! Is anyone else picking up their race pack from Hyde Park?
Training has been going fine thenks, Emma.
I ran the Great North Run on 16th September so I've just been keeping my legs ticking over since then. Although I didn't go out for yesterday's long run (6miles) due to a dodgy stomach so am now a day behind.
I've bought my running gear into work today with the aim of either running home or hopping on a treaddie at the gym if the weather is too horrid.
Just saying Hi as I am in this as well and it's my first half marathon.
Getting a bit nervous now as the largest field I've run with is 250 so 10,000+ will be quite different. I've done the training though and have my target time, so hopefully everything will go to plan.
Thanks for that Johnny - i'll be sticking with the 2hr 10 one
Hi Sleaver - don't worry about the size of the field. For me, this means more people to talk to en route!
Looking forward to doing this one.
I ran the Great Scottish HM a month ago in 2:23 so I may break the 2:20, who knows?
Good uck to everyone with:
1 Getting there - Anne - that's an early start!,
2 The run - hope you enjoy it....
I meant "luck" - d'oh!
Hyde Park Corner works too........
I'm planning to run there as a warm up but I think Green Park would work as well?
