Hi there! I was wondering if anyone has done the Reykjavik marathon before or if anyone is planning to run it this August? I was originally just going to do the half, but now am thinking may as well do the full! I read the old RW article on it from a couple years ago - left me with mixed feelings about the course, but still quite intrigued. The possibility of a top 20 female finish would certainly be awesome - and if it's a Boston Qualifying course (not sure if it is) that would be handy too. Thanks!
Hiya! Just entered the New Forest 10 (July 10th) with a friend and was wondering if anyone else is planning on doing it? We'll be coming up from London that morning...hopefully the trains will run early enough!
hi UD! i just read your paris race report and couldn't help but comment, since i ran paris last year (my first marathon) and suffered stomach issues as well so i can relate! around mile 10/11 my stomach went crazy (and there were hardly any toilets en route, it was horrible) - reaching the finish line was one of the toughest experiences of my life, and at times i didn't think i would finish but i did and felt especially proud having pushed through it all. it's incredible what you can get yourself to do if you're really determined, isn't it?! so well done on your race!! i hope you're recovering well this week.
when i ran new york in the fall, i was extra careful about my nutrition - cooked everything myself, meticulously planned my menus etc rather than go out to restaurants as i did in paris - and i was totally fine, what a relief, because i never want to have to experience what i went through in paris again!
