Orapidrun - agree with you about the right clothing. There's a certain amount of grim satisfaction to be had from going out when the weather is really pish. Then you see another runner coming the other way and there's a silent acknowledgement that you're both mad, but in a good way.
Charlie - excellent! There's a whole bunch of us who are London based and/or have run it before. Any questions about logistics, fire away.
Course you did, Pottermoss - have to keep standards up.
HIAHS - did she mean you shouldn't run tonight because she'd been working on your hamstrings, not that they were still recovering from the weekend? I wouldn't run the day of a massage either, because it does make your muscles and ligaments quite tender for a while.
Anyone else thinking of doing the Ranscombe Challenge on 14th March? I've just signed up because I realised I was due to a 30 miler that weekend and I might as well do it in company with a goody bag at the end.
