Hi Guys, I am new to this thread and haven't posted since I ran Brighton in 2010, fractured my hip that year, so was out for 2 years, but am back and have run two marathons, Florence in November (great run, can highly recommend it) and Miami in January. Am running Edinburgh in May and Berlin in September, should have run it last year but got injured in July and got too far behind with training. Am looking forward to being part of this thread and hearing more tips for Berlin!!

Welcome to the thread Jason & Sandi.

Like the majority of the guys on this thread (Paris guys) you are doing a spring Marathon, so your fitness levels should carry over into your Berlin schedule, unlike me who is starting from scratch due to illness.

If you look through this thread you might pick up some of the answers to any questions you may have regarding Berlin, if not just ask as we have a few Berlin veterans on board

2 weeks today till Paris

David - are you sure it's 2 weeks?  What Paris marathon are you doing? The rest of us are doing the one next sunday the 7th.

Sorry Sal- my bad. Good job I'm not doing it as I would b there on my own

Phew, thought I'd run into a Paris runner that was going to have a complete breakdown as they thought it was two weeks away rather than one.

Just started tapering for London before I can then get really excited about Berlin. Really can't wait, flying from Manchester on the fri coming back on Monday. Did Chester last oct andvh thread was excellent, good to see this is just as great. Love runners, always a nice bunch

Greetings Sir John. Ah, the madness Tapir is heading in your direction. The Paris thread is in full madness at the moment.

Are your flights via Frankfurt too?

It's so peaceful and quiet in here.

03/04/2013 at 22:27
Hmmmm, some would say, too quiet.
It's like a chill out room at a rave (like I've ever been to either)

Now to head back to the banging beats, pulsing lights and incessant lists in the Paris forum.

I'll be back.

HAHAAH RS.......I think that was just a pure fluke!!! If I had been trying it would of never happened!!!

So that's where I've been going wrong! Need to source some champagne for Berlin in order to get pb.

Sounds like you guys had a blast. I watched it on sky+ when I came home from work on Sunday, looks like a really good course.
