Thanks Orbutt. Have to say I'm getting rather excited about the whole thing .
I have to say I prefer Paris for most of the reasons given above, but if you've been brought up watching the London marathon every year, and all the atmosphere that goes with it, it's worth doing. I've done it once, and it was fab, but I'm not in a rush to do it again. But then I live in London, so I have a chance to run bits of the route every day if I want to.
Can anyone explain to me how the team tri relay works? I thought it was just an ordinary relay and one person did each section. But there are 4 people in each team, 2 male and 2 female, so it's not that. I'd quite like to know before I watch it on Saturday!
What's not to like about a ceremony with dancing teacakes? I think the Welsh let the side down a bit by sending our their lady athletes in nice dresses that you might actually want to wear - not in the spirit of the event at all.
